The Maharaja loyalties started this sanctuary in 1976. The sanctuary is spread over 100 square kilometers and is covered with pine, oak and grassland vegetation. It is a protection center for some endangered animals. Few of the common animals found in the sanctuary include mammals such as leopards, goral, kakkar, porcupines, Rhesus Macaque, the Himalayan black bear, the wild boar, and the black nabbed hare. Most of these can be spotted on a daily basis; hence, if you are an avid animal lover and love watching wild beings amidst their natural habitat, a visit to Chail and its sanctuary must feature in your ‘must visit’ tourist destinations in India.
