Our group of 6 people from Delhi had lot of fun and are happy to give a thumbs up for the Kareri Lake trek and experience. Within the span of 5 days, we had unlimited fun and the trails were so appealing. Really, a must trek to take for the beginners.

Overview

    It was only when locals told me, I believed that this place actually remains frozen in winters. What a view…no tough trekking…it’s a child’s play. Now that I’ve returned from Kareri I can actually say it.

    As the trek started from Dharamshala, we all were looking forward to it. McLeod Ganj and then Kareri Lake...the trek was pretty easy and filled with awesome moments. The villages on the way were way better than we thought and for a moment we all felt like settling down there permanently.

    We did the Kareri Lake trek during the summers. Even during that time, it was so beautiful and made our trek ever-memorable. The tour guides carried out the entire trek so decently. Planning to visit the lake during the winters now!
