Location and Leisure: Chail is a little sleepy town located at an hour s drive from State capital Shimla . The transformation of this little village community began in late 18th century when Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala decided to create a new summer capital which would be better than Shimla : all this for bruised ego.Nestling in shelter of virgin forest and untrodden hills, Maharaja Bhupinder Singh developed the highest cricket field in the world in Chail. Well kept and maintained, more than the excitement of game, the pitch offers picturesque view of the surrounding, with tall forest all around it. The proud ruler made sure that Chail had everything that Shimla doesn t.Self organized city tours and excursions. A variety of treks are available in close proximity. A visit to Shimla will offer an opportunity to see high Himalayan Mountains. Chail Palace and world s highest cricket stadium can also be visited.
