Chail Banjara Camp

DURATION: 2 Night / 3 Days

Start your Himalayan journey at the Banjara Camp in Chail and carry on to Sangla and Tabo. Chail is also good for a quick refreshing weekend break. Chail is 45 kms short of Shimla and a few hundred metres higher. The picturesque town is set amidst thick deodar forests and owes its existence to the Maharaja of Patiala who wanted to build his palace on a hill from where he could look down at Shimla. The Banjara Camp at Chail is set in a little clearing at the top of a hill, a couple of kilometers beyond the town from where you have a clear view of the Shimla valley. Cosy Swiss-style tents with attached bathrooms are ringed around the clearing and the view of the night-lights of Shimla is truly stunning.
