It is always recommended to not to travel Himalyas in Monsoon because mountains are very delicate as they go through rockfall, mudslides, landslides etc. It was the time of the year when the India was experiencing the heavy rainfall in monsoon and I was so desperate to travel somewhere in the mountains. Dharamshala is the closest and most famous Hill Station and It's likely to be my second home because I've been there a lot of times. Most of the treks were already closed so we didn't have an idea where to go. I know a guy named Sunny from Mcleodganj who is a very helpful and a very nice person. He recommended us the Kareri Trek to be the safest and open trek for the running monsoon. Though I never prefer to take a guide with me but this time, I was accompanied with some of my friends who were doing trek for the first time and It was monsoon so I was really concerned about their safety, So, we hired a guide named Sashi who was also very helpful and nice person.
Before I start my whole trip brief, I would like to let you know that this trip costs me 3000 Individually including travel expenses, food expenses and the tents and sleeping bags we rented along with the guide we hired. Considering we were 7 people and the cost was divided evenly among all and We hired our own traveller from Chandigarh to Kareri with for 2 Nights and 2 Days. We left Chandigarh at night so that we can spend the whole day treking. I travel journey at night because It can save your day that you can spend exploring places.
