Kareri Lake Trek Overview

Kareri trek starts from Dharamshala, about 9 km from Mcleodganj. The lake is situated at a height of 3300 m above the sea level. This beautiful lake is formed as a result of the melting of winter snow from the Dhauladhar Mountains feeding water to the lake. The lake has spectacular surroundings that lure trekkers from all around the world. The Dhauladhar range remains snow covered in the beginning months of the year and the magnificent views are the chief attraction.

Starting from Ghera village, the trail goes through dense Himalayan forests of Oak and Rhododendron trees, scenic valleys, and uneven terrains. Considered to be a good option for the first time as well as experienced trekkers. The trek is considered as an easy to moderate level difficulty. Kareri lake acts as the base camp for high altitude treks like Minkiani pass trek in upper reaches of Dhauladhar Mountains.

Kareri Lake Trek n Kangra district is opening up in late April and remains open for trekkers until sometime in November. Sometimes snow falls even in the month of April. Weather in Kareri region remains good in months of April to June and August to October and these are the best months to do this trek. Temperature can drop around 10-degree Celsius in these months and as low as 5 C in the month of November. 

The best thing about trekking in Himachal is the easy accessibility to various parts of the region. Starting from Delhi you can reach Dharamshala comfortably by Volvo buses. An overnight journey and you're in Dharamshala.
