The river flowing down is called Dhoti Khola that meets Modi khola in Nayapool. This Village has many historical temples, Kali Mandir at Pokhari swara is very famous among lumlelese. Kanchi Baraha Temple located in the middle of forest (north side of village) is a religious hotspot for the people around that region.

Brahmins, Gurungs,Pariyars and other minor castes. Education system is diverse and technical. There are few English Medium schools and many government schools. Balmandir community school, one of the best in country serves this region. Though its technically located in Dhikurpokhari VDC, it was originally started for Lumle Agricultural Research Center (LARC). As LARC was handed over to Nepal government (now known as, Regional Agricultural Research Station, Lumle), this school was automatically opened to general public. Shree Sangam High School is located in Chandrkot. Due to its poor performance, and ignorant school management, it hasn't been doing well in Government held SLC exams. Many Batches went NIL. The pass to fail ration is really low compared to National average. At the time of the 1991 Nepal census it had a population of 4,685 persons living in 955 individual households.[1]

Income Source[edit]

Most villagers are farmers. But this is not the major source of household incomes. Although, the whole south side of village is Paddy field, it doesn't provide enough year long food. Most but not all depend on imported rice. Most youths of this village are working aboard largely in Gulf countries of Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Malaysia. Lately, some young folks have recently made their destination to very advanced countries of the world including Japan, Korea, European nations, and a few to United States of America.
