All About It
  • 3 Days  2 Nights 
  • Difficulty - Easy Moderate
  • Best Season - Spring Summer

The Kareri Lake trek takes you through lush sub-tropical pine forests. The forests are filled with chir and chilgoza pines, interspersed with broad-leaf species. They also host a high density of birdlife which is easily spotted. In the latter half of the trail, the forests open up to rocky grasslands along the lake-fed Nyund Nallah which serves as both- a guide and a refreshing companion. The forests are dotted with pines and shrubs. The lake itself is glacial and close to the snow line. All these combine to make the transition of vegetation zones with altitude easily visible on this trail. Kareri Lake trek is a lovely weekend adventure for people looking for options away from the more beaten Himachal trails like Kheerganga, Prashar lake, Triund, etc. Several campsites along the trail, along with convenient options for food, make this an ideal beginner-level trail.
