Overview

Dhaualadhars, are themselves a mountain range quite apart from any other mountain range in the Himalayas. It is the outer most part of the Himalayas. The rock faces of this granite range are so sharply cut that they fail to hold snow for long, as a result you see snow in the gullies and on top. During the trek we walk through some Gaddi tribal villages. Gaddi is a semi nomadic shepherd tribe whose main occupation is agriculture and rearing of sheep and goat. The gaddi shepherds spend the whole summer on the mountains and during the winters, come back to the plains of Kangra with their flocks of sheep and goat.

Kareri Lake is a high altitude, shallow, fresh water lake south of the Dhauladhar range approximately 9 km North West of Dharamshala in the Kangra district, Himachal Pradesh. It’s surface is 3000 metres above the sea level. Snow melting from the Dhauladhar range serves as the source of the lake and a stream, Nyund is the outflow. Since the source is fresh melting snow and the lake is shallow, water visibility is very high and in most places, the lake bed can be seen. The new latest and shortest route for the trek starts from Salli village and one can use Snow Monk Camp as the base. Snow Monk camp offers modern washrooms and toilets and delicious meals. It makes all the sense to use it as a base for treks such as Kareri lake.
