Brief about the Trek:

At an altitude of 3250 meters above the sea level, to the south of Dharamshala in the kangra distict of himachal Pradesh lies a picturesque small glacial kareri lake. Kareri Lake is a high altitude, shallow, fresh water lake nestled around the dhauladhar mountain ranges of Himachal pradesh. Kareri Lake serves as a base for trekking further into the Dhauladhar and onward from kangra to Chamba and Bharmour via the Minkiani Pass and Baleni Pass.
The melting snow glacier from the dhauladhar range serves as the main source of the lake and its outflow stream nyund.
The trail to kareri lake is quite serene as it passes through the forest of Rhododenderon (State Flower of Himachal Pradesh), oak , pine tree and various water streams.
The Lake remains frozen from mid January to March during the winter months when only exclusive Snow trek is possible to the lake and during summer the surrounding meadows are rich in grass.
The trek offers richer and tranquil experience to the trekker. This moderate difficulty trek, good for both beginners and experienced trekkers.
