5-days Mcleodganj-Kareri Lake-Triund Round Trek

Day 2: Kareri to Kareri Lake to Bahl
Among the things to definitely see in Kareri, the Kareri Lake ranks on the top. The lake is situated at a high altitude. Since the source of the blue and tranquil water is the snow melting from the glacier, the lake is shallow and clear. We rest for the night in Kareri. The lake is situated at quite an elevation and takes another five to seven hours from the village. The distance from the village to the lake is around fourteen kilometres.
