Chail was the summer capital of the state of Patiala back in the day. However, now it is a hill station in the state of Himachal Pradesh. It is surrounded by the Siwalik range and overlooks the valley of Sutlej. Its beautiful and peaceful aura tends to attract tourists and travelers., especially since it is a mere 63 km away from Shimla.
How to reach Chail by road:
Chail is about 7-8 hours away from Delhi, perfect for a long weekend getaway. There are buses that go from Dlehi to Chail. However, it is preferable to take a bus from Delhi to Chandigarh and then board a local bus or hire a car from Chandigarh to Chail. This is because the frequency of buses tho chnadigarh is far more than that to Chail from Delhi.
