Shimla, Kufri, and Chail are frequently included in itineraries for tourists, and numerous Shimla packages also include these destinations. Chail is an excellent destination for a day trip from Shimla because it can be reached from Mall Road in just over two hours. For a more rewarding experience, you might even stay at one of the resorts. Only 45 kilometres separate Chail from Solan, another significant nearby city.

After being exiled from Shimla, the previous Maharaja of Patiala constructed Chail, the city that served as Patiala’s summer capital (he eloped with the daughter of then commander-in-chief of the British Army, Lord Kitchner). Since its founding in 1893, Chail has drawn travellers looking for a vacation surrounded by the splendour of the Shivalik hills. The tourist town of Chail is made up of three hills: Pandewa, Rajgarh, and Sadh Tibba.

Adventure seekers can choose from a variety of trekking and camping activities in Chail. Chail, which is near the river Sandhupul, also provides a variety of riverfront camping opportunities. Visitors may also go to the nearby Chail Wildlife Sanctuary.

Places to visit

The Palace Hotel is located in the midst of 75 acres of stunning lawns and gardens, right in the centre of the lovely city of Chail. This luxury heritage hotel offers a variety of living options, including a restaurant and bar that serves the tastiest international and Indian cuisine. High-end wooden furniture and rugs are used to decorate the rooms. The hotel has a children’s park, lawn tennis court, and pool room. Additionally, there are meeting rooms equipped with the most recent technology, a doctor on call, laundry services, a front desk, and excellent room service available around the clock.

Cricket Ground

As a cricket fanatic who made Chail his summer residence, Maharaja Bhupender Singh constructed a cricket field here on top of a hill, making Chail the proud owner of the highest cricket ground in the world.

Chail Wildlife Sanctuary

This region was once a hunting preserve for the royals who lived in Chail before it was designated a nature sanctuary by the government in 1976. Numerous bird and animal species can be found in this refuge.


In Chail, camping is one of the unique experiences and most popular activities. In close proximity to the stunning mountains and hills, you may participate in the various adventure activities planned at the campgrounds, sit by the bonfire and watch the stars, and eat a meal.


Between Chail and Solan, a tiny settlement called Sadhupul is built around the hill river Ashwin. The hamlet’s main attraction is a modest bridge over the river, which is also a well-liked picnic location and a significant tourism destination for the nearby towns. On the benches that have been built beside the river, you may genuinely relax while eating food from the nearby sellers.

Kali Temple

The temple is a well-known place of worship in Chail and is also well-known for its breathtaking scenery and for trekking, which is very common in this region.

Best time to visit

Chail is accessible all year long. Chail is thought to be best visited during the summer, which lasts from April through June.

Chail experiences lovely summers that are windy and entertaining. An excellent refuge not just to escape the city’s bustle but also to escape the heat.

Winters are bitterly cold and covered with snowy perfection. For snow lovers, snowfall in Chail occurs frequently. Chail’s monsoon season is pleasant with little precipitation but is vulnerable to a lot of landslides.


There are a few eateries and neighbourhood Dhabas in Chail. Here, one can also sample the regional Himachali food. There aren’t many more culinary alternatives available than these. Shimla offers a variety of restaurants that provide a variety of cuisines, including North Indian, South Indian, Chinese, Continental, etc., so tourists visiting Chail and Shimla should make Shimla their base there. Surprisingly, unlike Chail, Shimla does not have a large number of restaurants that serve the regional Pahadi cuisine.
