This beautiful riverside trek starts from Kareri village.
Kareri Lake is a fresh water, high altitude lake in south of the Dhauladhar Range in Western Himalayas. the Lake lies at an approximate distance of 9 km North West of Dharamsala in Kangra district, Himachal Pradesh and 2934 metres above the sea level. Since the source is fresh melting snow from Dhauladhar Range and the lake is shallow, water visibility is very high and in most places, the lake bed can be seen. The lake remains frozen from early December to March/April.
Kareri Lake which is also known as Kumarwah Lake is best known for being a trekking destination in the Dhauladhars. There is also a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and Shakti on a hilltop overlooking the lake. A few gaddi kothis are present on the other side of the lake, an area which is used by the gaddis as a grazing ground for their animals. Kareri Lake also serves as a base for trekking further into the Dhauladhar and onward to Chamba and Bharmour via the Minkiani Pass (4250m) and Baleni Pass (3710m).
