Kareri Lake is a high altitude, shallow, fresh water lake south of the Dhauladhar range approximately 9 km North West of Dharamsala in Kangra district, Himachal Pradesh. Its surface is 2934 metres above the sea level. Kareri lake is best known for being a trekking destination in the Dhauladhars.
Snow melting from theDhauladhar range serves as the source of the lake and a stream, Nyund is the outflow. Since the source is fresh 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 named after the nearby gaddi village of Kareri, situated 9 km south east of the lake.Kareri Lake is not connected by a road. The closest roadhead is at Ghera, a village near Dharamshala. From Ghera, a hiking trail leads to Kareri village, which is 3 km from Ghera. Another hiking trail of 13 km from Kareri leads to the lake. Most of this trail is along the Nyund stream right up to the lake
