Kareri Lake is a high altitude, shallow fresh water lake situated approximately 9 km from Dharamsala, District Kangra in Himachal. Kareri Lake is named after the nearby Gaddi village of Kareri, situated 9 km south east of the lake. Its surface is 2934 metres above the sea level. The lake is fed by the snow melting from the Dhauladhar mountains which serves as the source of the lake and a stream Nyund is the outflow. Due to the fresh shallow water, the bed of the lake is easily visible. Kareri lake is best known for being a trekking destination in the Dhauladhars.
