Is this the last of the Aryans?

In a remote valley deep in India’s Ladakh region live a tribe known as the Aryans, who are perhaps the last generation of pure-blooded people and holders of possibly the only untampered gene pool left in the world.

For many, the term ‘Aryan’ has negative connotations. However, it comes from the Sanskrit ‘arya’, meaning ‘nobleman’, and originally referred to a people who spoke an Indo-Iranian language and migrated from Central Asia to India and Iran. It was later used to refer to tribal groups who lived in the Indus River valleys that are now part of Pakistan and India, and it is their descendants who are said to make up this tiny minority found in the Ladakh region today.
