  • Trip introduction

    The Kareri Lake trek is a perfect trek for anyone who is seeking natural enrichment in a short span of time. For a blissful 3 days, you will be amidst dense forests, grazing sheep, snowy peaked mountains, lush valleys, clear blue skies, fresh air and of course the lake itself! The lake is fed by melting snow from the Dhauladhar range around, and is pristine and shallow. There are great opportunities for photographers here, thanks to the reflections in the clear water.

    IMPORTANT: This is not a fixed departure trek and requires a minimum of 2 travellers to book.

    Destination

    Known as a trekker’s paradise, the Kareri Lake trek is one of the most popular treks in the region, not just because of its duration, but because of its location. Situated in the midst of the Dhauladhar ranges, at an altitude of 9626 feet, Kareri Lake forms the base for many treks further up in the Himalayas. You'll start your trek on a riverside route, with views of glaciers in the distance. You'll cross ridges and walk along forested trails, until you come to the lake.
