Kareri is a sleepy village, with a lazy stream and far stretching green meadows, a place where the pace of life is woven around the pace of the river. Time almost halts here.
I was now in one of the sleepiest but most beautiful villages in Himachal Pradesh. Instead of being surrounded by tourists, here I was in a remote village, where not many travellers had set foot. Instead of engaging in heated bargain with food vendors, here a smile to local villagers can yield an invitation from the locals to taste their food. Such is the humbleness and simplicity of the locals.
There are many treks starting from this village, one of the most popular is the Kareri Lake trek. It takes minimum of two-three days to complete.
Trek Itinerary Day1:- Dharamshala to Liyoti via Kareri Village Day2:- Liyoti to Kareri Lake Trek Day3:- Kareri Lake Trek to Kareri Village and drive to Dharamshala The Kareri Lake trek being one of the alpine treks in the Indian Himalayan region is recommended for experienced trekkers who have prior experience of high altitude trekking. The best time to go for the Kareri Lake Trek is during the Indian summer season.
The source of Nyund stream, the Kareri Lake at an elevation of about 3,300 meters that is located in Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh is one of the high altitude lakes in the Indian Himalayan region. The Kareri Lake is formed by the inflow of melted waters from the Mankiani Peak. Surrounded by mountains dotted with alpine trees, the Kareri Lake serves as a base for trekkers hitting the trailing tracks deep into the Dhauladhar range and beyond towards Minkiani Pass at 4,250 meters and Baleni Pass at 3,710 meters
The true gift of travelling is to expect the unexpected when you embark on the journey, the people you meet and the revelations you have along the way.
