Of the many lakes that find their origin in Himachal Pradesh, the most fascinating of them all are the seven high-altitude nestled in the Dhauladhar ranges. These are Nag Dal Lake, Lam Dal Lake, Kali Kund, Kareri Lake, Chanderkoop Lake or the Moon Lake, Sukh Dal and the Dam Ghodi Dal.
Because they are so pristine and precious, and considered holy by locals, reaching them is not an easy task, certainly not for first-time trekkers. But if you are a seasoned trekker and interested in the Dhauladhar Lake Trail, it begins at an altitude of 8,000ft, with the highest elevation on this trail being 14,245ft. The lakes are frozen during the early summer months of April and May, so most batches for this trek start in June, when snow melts.
There are two different routes that can be taken to start this lake trek. One begins from Kareri village, and the other route starts at Triund. The better place to start this trek is from Triund in comparison to Kareri, is because through Triund, you will gain altitude smoothly and you will also get used to the steep gradient that will you'll have to walk on in the coming days.
This is a difficult trail and requires perseverance by trekkers, and I recommend that you hire a guide who can take you on the right trail.
