Best Things To Do in Chail

Located at an altitude of 2,250m above sea level, Chail is one of the most beautiful hill station one will ever come across in its lifetime. The then Maharaja of Patiala, Bhupinder Singh had founded Chail in 1983. Since Maharaja Bhupinder Singh was banned from entering Shimla because he had eloped with the daughter of the then Commander-in-Chief of British Army, Lord Kitchener, he decided to make a new summer retreat place from himself, Chail. Chail is just 63 km away from the capital of Himachal Pradesh, Shimla, but it does not attract the crowd of tourists which swarm in Shimla. Some of the best things to do in Chail include visiting the Chail Sanctuary, Chail Palace, Kali Tibba Temple, Sidh Baba Ka Mandir, etc.  It offers one of the most beautiful panoramic views of the scenic beauty which surrounds the city and is the perfect spot for people looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of the busy city life. Apart from the scenic beauty, Chail also offers few of the country’s finest and thrilling activities. If one is visiting the hill station with a group of friends, then they can either go for river rafting or for a trek. Trekking is an activity which cannot be explained, it can only be experienced, all the long walk pays off when one finishes the trek and gets that feeling of joy and triumph at the top of the hill. Even if one is traveling alone, they can enjoy activities such as flying fox, paragliding, rock climbing or the bamboo bridge. Except for the adventure activities, one can also enjoy the fauna and the monumental beauty of this place. It has a cricket ground, which is the highest cricket ground in the world and watching a cricket match here is definitely one of the best things to do in Chail. One can visit the Palace Hotel or even go to the wildlife sanctuary which houses numerous species of birds and animals. Chail is the perfect place to visit if one wants to enjoy the beauty of nature as well have some fun.
