This is another small paragraph.

  • Trip introduction

    Imagine this: You're walking down a trail in the middle of the Dhauladhar mountains, the wind blowing gently over the wide open spaces. You've just walked through forests scented of pine and filled with blossoming rhododenron, but now you're out of the shade, enjoying the sunshine. The air is fresh and the skies are clear. In the distance, you can see a flock of woolly sheep being herded down the green slopes. And then, as you go around a boulder, as if by magic, Kareri Lake appears. It's a clearwater lake, and you can see every pebble at the bottom, and the reflection of the skies above. You take off your trekking boots, lay your backpack down on the ground, peel your socks off, and step into the cold water at the edge of the lake. It's paradise. And you're in the middle of it.

    IMPORTANT: This is not a fixed departure trip, so you will need a minimum of 4 persons to book it.

    Destination

    Situated at an altitude of 10,500 ft, Kareri Lake is fed by the melting snow from the Dhauladhar mountains. It's a good trek for fit beginners, because it is mostly easy, but has some steep sections. It's close to Dharamshala, so you'll have to get to McLeodganj to start.

    The trail takes you through alpine forests, over sparkling streams, and up to the lake, where you'll camp at the base of two passes, with views of mountains all around. Apart from passing through a gorgeous trail, your 4 day journey consists of travelling from McLeodganj to Kareri Lake, with stops at Kareri Village and Riyoti campsite.

    Destination highlights

    • Visit a crystal clear lake filled with melting snow from the Dhauladhar mountains
    • Drink directly from freshwater streams
    • Book an easy trek that is close to McLeodganj
