Nestling in the shelter of virgin forests that cover many un-toddle hills, Chail (2226m) is a tiny resort in the Sivalik region of Himachal Pradesh. Happily isolated from the rest of Himachal, Chail is a place where time stands still, nature is at her exuberant best and words like pollution and deforestation have never entered the dictionary of people living here. Chail has interesting history. Originally, it was a part of Keonthal State. Then it came under the sway of the Gorkha warrior Amer Singh. Finally, it became a royal resort and summer seat of Maharaja Patiala.
