Include a Kareri Lake trek in your week-long holiday plans in Himachal Pradesh, and get ready for an amazing adventure. Kareri is a small glacial lake at an elevation of approximately 9620 feet above sea level. The place spellbinds all with its natural beauty, tranquil environs and clean air. This pond is surrounded by velvety high-altitude grasslands, which are gently sloped and bereft of trees. It is only along the high hills that deodars, firs and spruces grow.
Before you start the Kareri Lake trekking tour, you will get one day to explore the towns of Dharamsala and McLeodganj, which you should make the most of. Start the trip by journeying to the Kareri village, where you camp at night. The next section of the excursion will take you along the Liund stream to the campsite of Lioti. Crossing the river via boulders and temporary bridges will give you much thrill. The excursion from Lioti to the pond will be replete with breathtaking scenery, which you should capture in the camera. After camping for a night by the lake, you will hike down to Ghera, and this phase of Kareri Lake trekking will be a beautiful one.
