About Chail

It is a perfect place to rejuvenate one’s inner senses.

Around 47 km from Shimla, Chail has old colonial architectural marvels whispering the ancient times. The finest British colonial architecture amidst the green forest is one of the most unique sites in Chail. At an altitude of 2,250 m, it is surrounded by the breathtaking splendor of pines and deodars.
