Chail is a beautiful little town surrounded by the majestic Himalayan range on all sides. The small town proudly boasts the world’s highest cricket ground at 7,500 feet. However, that is not the only attraction of the town. People often go to Chail in search of a photogenic environment.

If you are lucky enough, you might just find your favourite movie star shooting a scene up in the hills at Chail.


If you love apples as much as we do, you must check out Chindi that is located only a few kilometres away from the majestic town of Shimla. The town of Chindi is filled with green apple orchards that produce several tonnes of apples every year.
