During the season, it is bliss to view the ranges covered with the trekkers who come here to conquer and live the hiking expeditions.

The feeling of being on the top and viewing the Mother Earth from the highest point is a bliss of nature. There could be no view more spectacular than this.

Ever wanted to be at such a place?

The Kareri Lake is one of the most popular treks in the Himalayas. It falls in the Dhauladhar range and is one of the best treks in India.

The difficulty level of the trek is easy to moderate which means it is a good news for the beginners to go and try this heavenly trek.

ATM Points and Connectivity

The last ATM point and the last area to receive the phone connectivity before starting the Kareri Lake trek is at the Salli village.

If the trekkers have to withdraw the money for the emergency use then this is the last accessible spot.

The phone connectivity is the best till you reach this village and after that, the phone's connectivity will be lost or start getting weaker.
