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 trek to Kareri Lake is one of the most beautiful alpine treks in Himachal Pradesh that cut across several gushing streams and passes through lush green meadows, wild and colorful orchards and thick forest that is a home to numerous Himalayan bird and animal species. Further, the journey also encounters many shepherd villages and small hamlets inhabited by the local gaddis.
