    The scenic beauty of this lake is so amazing. Trekking was a wonderful experience on this four day tour. Really made a long weekend worth the effort in Mcloedganj. Rarely heard of this place, it was so distinctly awesome in natural beauty. The tour cost is inclusive of meals and activities like camping, sightseeing and trekking. We went on as a group tour with my college buddies. It was a good trip and we saw many places on the way. It is one of the most beautiful treks I have ever been and I wish to come back again and do this trek. Some of the most fascinating attractions of this trek are Minkiani Pass, Ghera, Baleni Pass etc. Highly recommended if you are looking for rare and different treks in North India.

    It was a good experience… First time I booked with Thrillophila and I enjoyed it with my heart. Loved the Kareri Lake trek from Mcloedganj. These are some of the pros and cons of being on this trek:Pros:-Nice facilities and good camping arrangements-Our tour operator took care of all the small needs of us. He was also very entertaining and energetic to cheer us up whenever we felt tired-The views of Kareri Lake were the most stunning views I have seen in my life.Cons:washrooms and tents could be better. They were okay but it's just one complain which I felt that needs to be worked upon.Overall, it was just a superb trip and I really had a great time. Highly recommended to everyone.
