Kareri Lake Trek - 3 Days

Overview: Kareri Lake trek is a lovely weekend adventure for people looking for options away from the more beaten Himachal trails like Kheerganga, Prashar lake, etc. Several campsites along the trail, along with convenient options for food, make this an ideal beginner-level DIY trail for trekkers.

Kareri Lake is a trek to high altitude freshwater lake situated at an altitude of 2950 meters above sea level. Kareri Lake is surrounded by scenic meadows and Dhauladhars. The glaciers located in the Dhauladhars act as a water source to the Kareri lake.

The Kareri Lake trek is less explored and offers great scenic views of valleys and mountain ranges. The difficulty level of this trek varies from easy to moderate and hence it is suitable for both beginners as well as experienced ones.

The Kareri Lake trek starts from a small village called Kareri, which is around 2 hours from Dharamshala. The trek offers amazing views of Dhauladhar ranges and valleys.

The trail of the Kareri Lake trek is all the way ascending from the starting point and it passes through the lush forest of oak and spruce, narrow terrains, and beautiful meadows. The site of the Kareri Lake is also the basecamp of Minkiani and Bleni passes.

Yes definitely it is, the safety of girls is most important for us. All our guides and other staff are carefully chosen for trips/treks. They are honest and reliable but we also advise you to take care of your personal belongings.

We went on the trek to kareri lake on the new year with My Good Trip. The view of the sky full of stars we saw there, we had never seen before. It was like a dream. The lake was surrounded by snow and was frozen. Trekking to kareri lake is the best travel decision I have taken till date.

Mountains are always beautiful to visit but it becomes cherry on the cake if you have a wonderful group of young enthusiastic travelers with you. It was my third trip with My Good Trip and even this time they made it better than our expectations.
