Kareri Lake

Very few people who like stillness around such hypnotic places, pick Kareri Lake amongst the other places to visit in Kangra. Emerging from the heart of the Dhaulandhar range, this scintillating lake is one of its creation. The lake freezes in the winters leaving behind a revitalizing breeze. A major magnetism is the trekking experience during which you can partake in activities like Tyrolean Traversing. 

Although, only experienced people go for this since it is conducted on higher altitudes. It also forms the base for trekking further into this mountain range to Bagga and Rewa until one finally reaches the end point-Guna Devi Temple. You can bow down at the ancient Shiva and Shakti temple by the lake, a devotional place for many.

Where exactly: 
2 km ahead of Sari Village.

Bhrigu Lake

A blasting blue Brighu Lake sits cozily between two high-elevation edges towards the east of Rohtang Pass. One of the numerous cold lakes in Kullu Valley, this lake makes for an immaculate weekend trek and is appropriate for families. 

The noteworthy thing about this trek is that one can achieve an amazing elevation of 14,000 feet and experience snow over the second day of trekking! To add to that, the outdoors grounds at Rola Kholi and Pandu Ropa offer dream-like perspectives to wake up to. 

Bhrigu Lake is only 14 km far from the street head of Gulaba. On a splendid sunny day, the lake is a soaked shade of overlook me-not blue. Bhrigu Lake Trek is especially popular for trekking in Manali.
Amid winter, the lake, secured in the snow, will leave exceptional pictures in your psyche. 

Trekking to the lake is as pacifying as being at the lake itself. On Day 1, backwoods trails from Gulaba to Rola Kholi outdoors grounds take you through valuable old towns, welcoming apple plantations, clear rivulets, and greenfield lands. The trail ensures stunning perspectives of Kullu Valley, which gets to be prettier and prettier as you rise.

Preferred Season
: May-Sep

14000

Duration
: 4 day

Difficulty Level
: High.
