The Kareri Lake, or the Kareri Dal as it is called locally lies in Dhauladhar mountains at an altitude of 3300 Meters.  It lies in upper region of Dharamshala in Kangra valley of Himachal Pradesh. The temperature of the area keep changing depending upon the skies and seasons. Winter is very harsh and cold here. However spring in Himalayas is the best season to opt any trek in the region so we advice you to opt this trek anytime between May to September. This trek is moderate to challenging one. The dense forest of the trek consists plenty of floras and faunas. You will have a close look at the different trees which are varieties of Pine, Devdar, Reododandrum and many wildflowers. The floras changes at different scale and height during trek. At the first day start of trek, it little steep but much gradual but next day of summiting the Kareri Lake is quite steep, tiring and really challenging. Once you will also cross a little patch of murrains – an area covered with big boulders and rocks. But mostly this trek is dominated with lush green Himalayan forests. We invite you to take the thrill of Kareri lake and get into a different part of Himalayan culture. Also from the top of Kareri Lake, there are many ancient passes visible and you will have chance to capture the different peaks of Dhauladhar Mountain range as this side of Dhauladhar is at its largest form.

Day 01: McLeod Ganj to Kareri Village
Reach McLeod Ganj early in the morning by 0900 am; freshen up and have quick tea/coffee. Later we will begin the Kareri Lake trek, and in its first phase, hike to the camp at Kareri Village. The climb is not difficult at all, and will take you through dense but beautiful pine jungles. As you tread along the trail for 4-5 hours, you will pass by a number of small villages. Most of the journey involves trekking down the mountains, and only the last part has some climbing. The village you are walking towards is atop a ridge, and has an altitude of around 5905 feet.
Day 02: Kareri Village to Rioti Camp
Upon waking up, start the next section of Kareri Lake trekking, and gear up for a tough climb. Today you will walk for anywhere between 4 and 5 hours, but the journey will be highly rewarding. The path goes along a narrow mountainous river, named Fund, which will have to be crossed again and again. Some crossings consist of makeshift bridges while others will have to be negotiated by walking on riverine boulders. Your campsite for the night will be beautiful and velvety alpine grassland, which has an elevation of approximately 8038 feet above sea level.
Day 03: Rioti to Kareri lake
What follows is the most important part of Kareri Lake trekking tour as it will take you to your final destination of the hike. The ensuing 4 hours of treading along the mountains will take you to the base of Minkiani Pass, where the lake is situated. This is also the most scenic part of the entire trip, and once you start walking, you will know why. You will first walk on a narrow, rocky and muddy track, lined with thickly forested mountains on one side, and a river gorge on the other. As the region is not too high, you will see coniferous as well as deciduous trees along the way. High above the ground, the mountains may be obscured by clouds. As you continue your Kareri Lake trek, you will keep gaining altitude, and the vegetation will start becoming less dense. After a while, you will be walking on quite a rough trail. You will now tread along another rocky river, and the altitude of the region will result in the disappearance of deciduous trees. Only towering spruces and firs along with lush grass will be seen. Here the clouds may be right at the surface, and you might get the opportunity to pass through them. The campsite for this night will be another enchanting meadow, and from here you will be able to see Minkiani Pass, Baleni Pass and a valley below.
Day 04: Kareri Lake to Kareri Village and Back to McLeod Ganj
This day, you end Kareri Lake trekking, and hike down to a place known as Ghera. First, you will trek down along the river and coniferous forests of firs and spruce, and as you lose elevation, the vegetation will keep becoming denser. After you lose a significant amount of elevation, tall deodar trees will start appearing, and the grass will become lush. At Ghera, you will board a Jeep and drive all the way to McLeodganj.
