Kareri is a glacier-fed lake nestled in the Dhauladhars. It lies under the shadow of Minkiani pass and Lam Dal. Accessible via a 9.8-km moderate trek this post aims to show you why it is a much-beloved destination for hikers and trekkers.

If you intend to trek to Kareri remember to Leave No Trace and bring back more than you take in. Thank you!
