Activity

The primary attraction is the great mountain view.

Being in a quiet and peaceful corner of the hills, the village is an excellent place for one to walk around and enjoy nature's bounty. The forested hills are also a great place to go for short and medium treks. Charkhole is also a very good birding destination, where you can spot some rare species of Himalayan birds and butterflies.

Nearby Places

Loleygaon is just 12 kms through a heavily forested road. However the travel time will entirely depend on the road condition. Since the road is not very often used, it can take quite long if the road is not in good condition. Loleygaon can also be reached by trek through the forests which takes about 2 hours. Chuikhim on the other hand is about 18 kms away and should be reachable in 45 minutes drive.
