Charkhole is a small village in Darjeeling district with the height of 5000 feet & 22kms from Kalimpong. Me & my wife paid a trip there and stayed at Charkhole Kanchan Resort for 3 night 4 days on and from 22nd November 2018 under utmost care of nature and generous behaviour & hospitality of the resorts people with their limited resources at such remote place. Luckily, during those days weather was clear and we experience spellbound sun rise and sun set on the whole Singalila Ridge of the mighty Himalayas.
Charkhole is a isolated place. Our three days stay was faced scarcity of electricity, mobile network and charging batteries. Even added more is the underprepared bumpy roads! But all hazards & problems seems to be trivial on viewing the entire range of Kanchenjunga smiling broadly at us throughout the day! And even during night it was fascinating to see from high above, the Kalimpong town glittering like million pices of Diamond among the dark mountain.
One day we went for sight seeing to Loleygaon Hanging Bridge (canopy), Lava and Rishop. All three are big brothers with their own beauty. But to me Charkhole is the Best.
Charkhole with the Kanchan resort is an ideal place for nature lover, to feel, breath & bow down in front of the Majestic Himalayas.

Which I don’t like:
There was no variety of foods but very tasty
Room was terribly cold(though breath taking view I must say)
no room heater
Gyser was not working properly
no TV at room(getting boar like anything)
No inter connection with the reception from the room..This is absolutely not acceptable al all..if something went wrong no way to connect them as phone signal absolutely poor…no network
