Wangala is a time of revelry – as the harvest is complete and the people can rejoice. In the midst of the festivities, apart from soaking in the beautiful dances and outfits, visitors can enjoy local cuisine and traditional beverages like the famous Garo rice wine – bitchi. During the Wangala festival, the men and women are dressed in the best traditional apparels, showcasing vivid colours and patterns. Some of the eye-catching garments that the women wear include the bead-embellished chroko ganna, the ganna dakmanda (wrap), the genji gisim (shirt) or they can also replace that with a pandra (a crisscrossed cloth worn across the body), and kadesil is the distinctive headgear. Coral, shells, beads, and silver dominates the many ornaments worn by the men and women.
