About Kareri Lake Trek

Kareri Lake is a high altitude, shallow, freshwater lake south of the Dhauladhar range approximately 9 km northwest of Dharamsala in Kangra district, Himachal Pradesh. Its surface is 3000 meters above sea level. Snow melting from the Dhauladhar range serves as the source of the lake and a stream, Nyund is the outflow. Since the source is fresh melting snow and the lake is shallow, water visibility is very high.

This trek starts from Kareri village which is the base camp and passes through lush green forests of pine, oak and rhododendron, rocky grasslands and meadows. The lake remains frozen from December to April every year. This is not a very arduous trek and can be easily done by beginners. There is also a small Shiva temple near the lake. This trek provides some of the most stunning views.

The best time to do this trek is from end of March to June and from October to November. The temperatures fall down in winter, and it is therefore advisable to do this trek during the summer and spring season.

This is a fairly easy trek and can be attempted by first timers. However it is advised to follow a proper fitness routine to prepare your body for the trek. There might also be chances of people experiencing AMS at high altitudes. If you experience any symptoms, let your guide know immediately and they will be able to help you out.

As this is an easy trek, the level of fitness that is expecteed from the participants is moderate. We request you to follow a proper fitness regime while preparing for the trek.

To prepare for the Kareri Lake trek, start your fitness routine atleast a month before attempting the trek. Go on regular walks alternating with jogs, practice some cardiovascular exercises and squating to strenghten your muscles and control your heart rate and your breathing.

This is a relatively short trek so look for a rucksack that has enough capacity to hold all your clothes and belongs along with any gears or equipments that you wish to carry along with you. Also look for wide straps that rests comfortably on your shoulders.

We would advise you to carry trekking boots along with you.. These shoes are very durable and slip resistant. They also support your feet and ankles and protect you from the cold. Please make sure that the shoes fit you properly to avoid tripping.

Yes. The guides are professionally trained to handle any emergencies or medical situations that might arise. They are also used to the environment there and can help you get the most out of the trek.

The difficulty level of the Kareri Lake trek lies between easy to moderate. However it can be easily attempted by professionals as well as beginners.

If you have been waiting for an opportunity to go on a solo trek for a while, but were unsure as to which trek to go for, we would recommend the Kaerei Lake trek. Come along as we pass pine forests, snow-clad mountains and alpine grasslands with the Lake being the centre of attention!
