We(Himalayan trips) are here to guide about Chail.
Of all the offbeat places in Shimla, I find Chail one of the prettiest for obvious reasons. The hill-station area placed 44 km from Shimla is a refreshing getaway in the vicinity of Delhi. While Shimla is gasping for fresh air, Chail thrives amidst refreshing breeze straight from the mountains.
The hill-station lies neatly entwined in the vast expanse of Chail Wildlife Sanctuary. Chail is a 2-hour ride from Shimla where nature’s beauty all around awaits you.
From lakes to vast national parks and from wildlife sanctuary to religious places, there’s a lot that I found interesting in Chail. Let’s take a closer look at all the activities that keep you profoundly engrossed here in the heart of nature.
Some of the most popular places to visit in Chail are Himalayan Nature Park, Siddh Baba Ka Mandir, Gurudwara Sahib, Chail Wildlife Sanctuary, and Sadhupul Lake.
Walk around the national park region, there are a few lesser-heard trails running across the mountain areas of Chail that enchant every nature lover. Apart from temple-hopping and nature viewing, there are exciting places like World’s highest playground at 7500 ft in the cantonment region, which every traveler must visit. Nature viewing experiences and a cricket match here make some of the most popular things to do in Chail.
If you really want to savor opulence then head to Chail Palace Hotel. Once you manage to get a booking at this palace-turned-heritage-hotel, you certainly feel privileged. I’d recommend March to June as the best time to visit Chail. Buses ply to Shimla and further to Chail in Tandem from Delhi.
