Chail: A Perfect weekend Getaway

4th June 2006 Chail - Delhi

Last night Faiyaz had gone to sleep couple of hours before us, hence woke up early as well. Since he was awake, he started bugging Shamik and Me to wakeup. His persistence finally paid off when after an hour of bugging both of us had enough and woke up. And we woke up at the perfect time, as soon as we woke up the hotel owner came with tea. With in an hour we were ready and we decided to visit the highest cricket ground in the world (located at an altitude of 7500ft).

Apparently its not only a Cricket ground, but also a play ground for the students of the military school.

Then we headed toward the nearby Sidh Baba Ka Mandir

After visiting the temple, we headed towards the main market and found a dhaba there. At the Dhaba we ate the delicious Chhole - Bhature, when we came out I found a monkey near our bikes who was also having his breakfast.

We decided to head toward Kufri, since we still had the whole day and we didn't wanted to head back early. After checking out of the hotel, we were once again on the scenic state road.

After traveling for 10kms or so, Faiyaz and I decided to explore a dirt trail.
