Kareri Lake is best known for being a trekking destination in the Dhauladhars. The lake remains frozen from early December to March–April. There is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and Shakti on a hilltop overlooking the lake. Kareri Lake (also known as Kumarwah Lake) is a high altitude, shallow, freshwater lake south of the Dhauladhar range approximately 9 km northwest of Dharamsala in Kangra district, Himachal Pradesh. Its surface is 2934 meters above sea level. Snow melting from the Dhauladhar 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.
