Chail has slowly gained popularity as a weekend getaway in Himachal. Away from the chaos of Shimla, this lovely town is home to the highest cricket ground in the world (a great sight even if you are not a cricket fan). The popular Chail Palace built by the Maharaja of Patiala is the perfect place to spend a leisurely afternoon. Do carry a picnic basket since food here is slightly expensive. Unlike Shimla, Chail is a quiet town without a mall road or fancy restaurants. What you will certainly get here is a variety of homestays to choose from and delicious dhaba food. For adventure enthusiasts, there are tons of trekking routes; some of the more popular ones are Kandaghat – Chail, Chail – Rajgarh and Chur Chandni and Chail – Shimla via Junga. Do ask the locals before planning your trekking routes since they know the area the best.

Kali Ka Tibba
Wheneverone talks about Chail, what I had heard (like most og you ) was, "Chail palace" & "Highest cricket ground in Asia".However, This time I explored the place called " Kali ka tibba" at 2250 mts altitude. A calm,serence place, beautiful view all arrounfd being the top most point of that hill. Very neat ,well maintained mainly due to the fact that no shops are allowed in the campus, you get prasad only from temple pujari.
Sidh Baba Ka Mandir
Located in the Mihani Village of the Chail District, this is a popular holiday resort. The main reason which attracts tourists to this resort are the beautiful views from the terrace as well as most of the room windows. The staff is extremely friendly and the way they maintain cleanliness and hygeine is remarkable. The food served is very good and the rooms are very good too. They have a separate games arena with many indoor games for the guests. However, all the rooms do not have great views and so you will have to go to the terrace for better views.
Grand Sunset Hotel
Calmness, nature, hidden places to explore in between the mountains while walking, nice people, great food, but hold cash with you because this place ha only 2 ATM's and if there is no electricity they will not work, we suffered :'( , but overall I loved this journey :) .
