  • Trip introduction

    Embark on a gorgeous trek to Kareri Lake and spend three days in the hills of Himachal Pradesh. Hiking through thick forests of oak and pine, you'll explore vast grasslands and gushing waterfalls. At vantage points where you can rest and catch your breath, you'll get unfiltered views of mountains in the Dhauladhar range. After trekking for hours each day, you'll spend the night in tents pitched at some of the most scenic locations, including a night spent camping by shimmering waters of the Kareri Lake.

    Destination

    Perched atop Himachali mountains at an altitude of over 9,600 feet, Kareri Lake is a shallow, freshwater lake fed by the melting glaciers of the Dhauladhar mountains. Mesmerizing views of the surrounding hills, reflected in the still waters of the lake, await at the Kareri Lake, rewarding travellers who reach the lake after hours of trekking. The months of summer bring vast meadows with lush greenery, while the months of winter bring snow-laden vistas around the frozen lake.

    Destination highlights

    • Climb up to 9,600 feet to visit the Kareri Lake.
    • Stay in alpine tents at scenic campsites.
    • Catch beautiful views of the Dhauladhar mountains.
    • Spend a night by the Kareri lakeside.
    • Embark on a short, easy trek in Himachal Pradesh.
