If the tour of Chail ignites your desire to explore the Himalayan region more, you are at the most convenient destination. Though Shimla will always be an option, if you are looking for something less crowded and nearer than the capital, the following places will be treats for your eyes:

  • Sandhupul

    Iron bridge, shallow water with stony river-beds, green trees all around - yes, this is the very first image of Sandhupul that will welcome you. Situated near the river Ashwini, this small village is only about 13 km from Chail and takes less than 30 minutes from Chail. Hire a cab, pack some sandwiches or samosas and be ready to picnic near the glistening water.

  • Kufri

    Kufri, a popular tourist spot near Chail, again, takes less than 30 minutesby road. In winter, the pristine white snow is always a major attraction but when the snow melts, one can hike to the amazing Himalayan Nature Park. Apart from many Himalayan animals, if it is a clear, sunny day, get ready to be blessed with a spectacular view of the entire Himalayan mountain range. You can also spend the night under the starry sky as the Himachal Pradesh Forest Department provides limited camping facilities. So light the bonfire and don't forget to roam around on a Yak!

  • Shoghi

    If worshipping nature is actually reminding you to visit a temple, you can visit Shoghi, which is only 18 km from Chail, and offer prayers to Goddess Tara Devi in the Tara Parvat hills. Apart from this, there is at least one temple in every village in Shoghi. So, choose your best option or go on a praying spree. For those with an adventurous streak, try trekking during the day and camping at night. Last but not the least, Park Woods, a village resort is a dream destination for bird-watchers.

  • Kasauli

    Hardly 2 hours from Chail, Kasauli is at a distance of 64 km. You can continue your praying spree here, as a temple of Lord Hanuman is located at the famous Monkey Point. The Victorian mansions built by the British never fail to give an old world charm to Kasauli. It is not everyday that one gets a chance to a ride on a cable car. So, don't leave out your visit to Timber Trail in Parwanoo for that breathtaking view from 5000 feet above sea level.

Keeping the places around Chail in mind, consider a trip to Chail as a combo package of different destinations wrapped up in a colourful paper with images of animals, sceneries, mountains, temples and, of course, the limelight- world's highest cricket ground. Chail is a wonderful gift, waiting to be unwrapped.
