Location / Accessibility
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.
Loleygoan and Chuikhim are the two popular tourist destinations near Charkhole, both within a short driving distance from here.
Loleygaon is just 12 km 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 a long if the road is not in good condition. Loleygaon can also be reached by a trek through the forests which take about 2 hours. Chuikhim on the other hand is about 18 km away and should be reachable in 45 minute drive.
