  • Lovely place to visit. 12kms one way. Couple of stops in the middle. There's a small shack at the top where you can get food / snacks. Maggi@40 . Pack your own tents coz the huts are open from one side, and it gets really cold at night .

  • Kareri is one of the beautiful treks i have ever done. The serenity and beauty of the trek got me. It is an all season trek. Summer, Monsoon as well as winters. But try to avoid it in extreme conditions especially monsoon and winters. Did this trek in monsoon but we did it pretty well. You just have to be aware that himalyan rains are unpredictable and you should be well prepared for that. Spare clothes, shoes and waterproofing covers and cases are must haves

  • Beautiful lake on such height, the view is awesome during winters.

  • Best place to visit with your friends and family Here to find peace of mind . Nd very good place to enjoy at weekend .

  • A must visit place for summer time. Need to trek to reach this beautiful sightseeing lake. No option of food and accommodation. You need to carry your loads on your own. Need some tent. The one who found it difficult to breathe, it's better to avoid then. Can reach to chilling temperature during winter. Good to visit in groups. Some time near by wild animal came here to silent their thirst. If need more info can go to himachal tourism website. Some activities near by in pictures
