A lovely path through the cedar woods led us down from Hotel Himneel to the bazaar. I loved this walk and wished every trek we undertook would be this scenic.
Chail Palace was constructed by the Maharaja Bhupinder Singh in 1891. He had a row with the British because of which he was expelled from Shimla.
The temple dedicated to goddess Kali, located atop Blossom Hill, offers fabulous views of the Shivalik Range and the Choor Chandni peak.
Chail, spread over three hills (Pandhawa, Rajgarh, Sidh Tibba), is a great place for leisurely walks. The walk to the Cricket Ground is a very pleasant one with short detours to the Gurudwara Sahib and Sidh Baba Mandir.

Built in 1853, Christchurch is the oldest church in Himachal Pradesh. Interestingly, the Sunday service is held in Hindi.
Gilbert’s Trail, past the Kasauli club, is among the most scenic trails in the Kasauli region.
Kasauli’s main town is made of just 2 streets – the westward Upper Mall Rd and the eastward Lower Mall Rd. The two meet near the shops and food stalls that are just above the bus stand.
