Kareri Lake is a high altitude, shallow, fresh water lake south of the Dhauladhar range

approximately 9 km North West of Dharamsala in Kangra districtHimachal Pradesh. Its

surface is 2934 metres above the sea level. Snow melting from the Dhauladhar range

serves as the source of the lake and a stream, Nyund is the outflow. Since the sourcfresh

melting snow and the lake is shallow, water visibility is very high and in most places, the

lake bed can be seen.


Kareri lake is best known for being a trekking destination in the Dhauladhars. The lake

remains frozen from early December to March–April. There is a temple dedicated to

Lord Shiva and Shakti on a hilltop overlooking the lake.. A few gaddi kothis are present

on the other side of the lake, an area which is used by the gaddis as a grazing ground for

their animals. Kareri Lake serves as a base for trekking further into the Dhauladhar and

onward to Chamba and Bharmour via the Minkiani Pass (4250m) and Baleni Pass



Kareri Lake is named after the nearby gaddi village of Kareri, situated 9 km south east of the lake.
