Kareri Lake in Summer
You may expect to feel close to nature as you walk across velvety green meadows and pass through alpine forests featuring a mix of rhododendron, deodar, spruce, and oak trees. During summers, the day temperature here usually varies between 10 to 26 degree Celsius but starts to drop as the evening approaches and goes to as low as -2 degree Celsius at night.
The little or no probability of rainfalls during the summer season also contributes to making it an ideal time to trek.
Kareri Lake in Monsoon
While you may experience subzero temperatures at night, the days are less colder as the temperature hovers between 9 to 18 degree Celsius. Due to regular rainfalls, the valleys on the trail turn dramatically vibrant and the vegetation becomes all the more verdant.
On the downside, camping is not advisable during this season as the water streams turn fierce and the camping ground remains muddy. However, you may easily find accommodation options in Kareri Village.
Kareri Lake in Autumn
During the season, the rainfalls become rare, the skies appear clearer, and the pleasant daytime climate relaxes the challenging nature of the adventure. Though it is bearably cold during September and October, the nights get extremely chilly during November.
Kareri Lake in Winter
The thick layers of snow on the trail make it virtually impossible to cross the last few kilometres of the trail. Hence, for those who lack prior experience of winter treks, it is advisable to avoid this trek during the winter season. If you are fond of capturing winter scenes in the Himalayas, this season might be the best time of the year to put your photography skills to use with fewer visitors to photobomb your perfectly timed frames.
