The hill station is still in the early stages of tourism and as such the region is not very overcrowded and wears a fresh look, along with holding onto its old-world charm, which has increasingly become a rarity in today’s urbanized world. The lack of too much crowd makes Chail the perfect destination for people looking for an escape far away from the regular tourist hot spots.
