Kareri Lake, also known as Kumarwah Lake, is a high altitude, shallow, freshwater lake located south of the Dhauladhar Range in the Kangra District of Himachal Pradesh. This popular trekking destination is a glacial lake made from the snow melting from the Dhauladhar mountains. The Nyund Stream which accompanies trekkers through most of the trek forming little natural pools here and there is the outflow of the lake. Located at an altitude of 2950 meters above sea level, the water visibility of this lake is outstanding thanks to its shallow depth and fresh melting snow as a source. In fact, even the lake bed is clearly visible in some patches of the lake! There is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and Shakti on a hilltop overlooking the lake. It is a 13-kilometre hike from Kareri village to reach Kareri Lake. Kareri village is located about 30 kilometres from Dharamshala city and remains cut off due to heavy snowfall through most of the winters.
