Kareri Lake

There are multiple number of trekking expeditions happening every year to Kareri Lake and the reason is nothing but the high altitude range of Dhauladhar the lake is situated on and the breathtaking serenity that acts as the perfect background for the lake. This shallow, fresh-water lake depends on the snow melting away from the Dhauladhar Range to fill its stomach and it looks more beautiful when it is in the frozen state from the month of December to March-April. A 9 KM dirt road connecting Kareri to the nearest town Ghera is the only way to reach the top where a temple of Lord Shiva and Shakti is established overlooking the lake. In winter the lake will be frozen but that is the season umpteen number of trekkers flood to witness this ideal beauty.
