Craving A Vacay? Head To Chail Over The Long Weekend To Relax And Rejuvinate
What Makes It Awesome
A quiet hill station barely two hours away from the capital of Himachal, Chail makes for a picture-perfect mountain short getaway in the lap of nature. Popularly known as the summer capital of the flashy imperial families of the princely state of Patiala, Chail is surrounded by lush greenery and mesmerizing views. With its stunning panoramic views and calmness around, it will be a memorable travelling experience if you are looking to get away from the other cramped places in the state. With a dense cover of pine and Deodar trees, its lush green meadows and stunning mountain views, this place should be on your to-visit list. We were there for a day trip in last April and loved every corner of it. Overlooking both, Kasauli and Shimla, Chail enjoys pleasant climate throughout the year and is idyllic for those looking for a foggy and hazy hill station. Not only the scenic beauty, it has a lot in store for adventure lovers - go trekking from Chail to Shimla and do snow trails camps, you will love every bit of it.
What Could Be Better?
There aren't so many restaurants here, so you would probably struggle a bit to find good food.
What's My Pro Tip?
The weather here is usually breezy so do carry your warm clothes. Also, don't forget to visit Kali Ka Tibba temple for mind-blowing views.
Horseback rides are one of the most thrilling ways to explore the surroundings of Chail. In the ancient days, the Maharajas used the horses for hunting, and it's still considered as an authentic way of sightseeing.
