Chail is a splendid hill station in Himachal Pradesh situated near Shimla at an elevation of 2250. The hill station is famous for its unmatchable serene pristine beauty which hasn’t seen too much commercialisation and hence has maintained its raw natural alluring appeal. The city was founded by by then Maharaja Of Patiala in the nineteenth century. This has been summer abode for many kings of the erstwhile maharaja of Patiala kingdom.
Snowfall in Chail makes it one of the top destinations for tourists in peak winters. This is due to its wondrous snowy beauty amidst the numbing snow blanket, its beautiful tall chir and deodar trees which gets partially covered with snow flakes, and its entrancing forests all around the town.
Winters here can get extremely frigid and chilly here. The winter period starts from November and stretches up to mid March. In peak winters temperature usually drops to 1 degree celsius or sub freezing levels. Best part is snowfall in Chail is frequent and one can expect the hill station to be covered with white snow during the peak winetrs.
Extremely pristine wildlife sanctuary – it is abode for a number of unique species of flora and fauna. This wildlife sanctuary used to be a hunters paradise for erstwhile kings – hunting was later banned by the govt. Lots of exquisite migratory birds also throng this place during winters. Wonderful place to spend your time in the entrancing beauty of this fabulous nature park.
