I have always been fond of treks. That feeling of triumph when you reach the top makes you forget all the pain. That dark sky at night full of gazillion stars, washes away all your worries and you just feel calm and excited at the same time. This time I wanted to do an off beaten trek and hence Kareri lake. Kareri Lake is not all unexplored but sure is less crowded than other treks.
Kareri lake which is situated at an elevation of 3,300 meters, slumbers between lush green meadows in its full glory. But as they say "Everything comes at a price". To reach Kareri lake,one has to do a challenging yet pleasing trek of 14 kms(one way) from Kareri village.
Me with my two female friends started our journey from Dharmshala at around 11 am. As there is no bus service to Kareri village, we hired a taxi which costed us 1200 rupees. Although the total distance is just 26 kms, it takes 1.5 hours to reach Kareri village from Dharamshala because of road conditions.
