Kareri Lake Trek with Minkiani Pass (7 Days)
Trek Type: Easy to moderate
Kareri Lake surfacing at 3034 meters is a high altitude, shallow, fresh water lake fed by melting snow from Dhauladhar range. Clarity of water is so good that the lake bed is visible in most of its area. The lake remains frozen from early December to March-April. There is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and Goddess on a hilltop overlooking the lake. A few Gaddi kothis (Shepherd’s temporary dwelling place) are present on the other side of the lake, an area which is used by the gaddis as a grazing ground for their livestock. The Dhauladhar is not a high range as compared to the Greater Himalayas but it still offers amazing opportunities for trekkers and climbers alike. The highest peaks are all in the 5000 meters range and there are several peaks with interesting names like Two Gun, Mon, Riflehorn and Arthur’s Seat, reminiscent of Dhauladhar exploration during British rule. Minkiani Pass at 4250 metres offers an opportunity to gain views towards the north, where peaks like Sickle Moon (6574 mts) and Brammah (6515m) falling in Kishtwar region of Kashmir are most prominent.
