Chail is a quiet little hill station in a thickly forested area of Himachal Pradesh. It used to be the summer capital of Patiala Kings. Now the palace is a hotel and open for tourists. Chail is around 49 km away from Shimla and is a perfect place for those who want a quiet holiday away from the hustle-bustle of other more popular and crowded hill stations.
