This has been an wonderful stay in Home Stay at Charkole. At night, lights at the houses in opposite hills plays with star and looks like sky and hill are same. Fresh air will add charm to the environment.

We stayed there for 2nights and got to see the 180°view of Kanchenjunga range.There were occasional spells of rain.The weather was soothing.The sight of floating clouds touching the ground throughout the day made the stay even more beautiful.Network problem is the only minus point.

Charkhole is one of the best offbeat destination nearby Loleygaon. It's a small & calm himalayan hamlet stucked in dense pine forest. Charkhole offers magnificient panaromic view of Kanchenjungha. Adventure seekers can take up short treks to Kaffer and Gomphu Dara.
