Chail near Shimla
see Jungle Retreat Chail Chail
is a Maharaja's revenge for not being allowed to enter Shimla over his romantic
Scandal Point. Maharaja of Patiala
developed this beautiful countryside and also built the majestic Chail Palace.
The place still retains it's old charm without addition of much concrete, as in
Shimla. Chail is 45 km from Shimla though one can go directly to Chail from
Delhi by taking a turn at Kandaghat on Kalka-Shimla highway. There is Chail
wildlife Sanctuary to see, Chail cricket ground, the highest cricket ground in
the world, and a small stream flowing nearby, good for day picnics at the side
of the rivulet. You can also go for long walks along the dense pine forest. In
the day you may have a few interruptions in your peace process cos of
travellers from Shimla, but by the evening they are all gone and you have the
place all to yourselves. So, I would recommend Chail to those travellers who are
looking for some quiet and beautiful place with accommodation varying from
budget to deluxe accommodation at Chail. Chail is all that, which Shimla is not.
So if you like the hustle bustle stay at Shimla, if you are more happy away from
the crowds, opt for Chail Resorts, or you can combine Chail stay with Shimla.
