A small yet beautiful village situated in Himachal Pradesh, overlooking the majestic Dhauladhar mountain range, is the lovely location – Kareri. Since it is an offbeat vacation spot, you will find the best views without it being hampered by thousands of people creating chaos. We totally get it, that posting pictures on Social Media is the most ‘IN’ thing. Worry not, from the breathtaking sunrise and sunset views in the Dhauladhar mountain range to a private lagoon with crystal clear water, Kareri demands your camera’s attention. Whether you are a mountain person or a beach person, that feeling of wonder will always accompany you giving you all the more reason to visit Kareri.
2. Travel Through Clouds

Situated at 2934 meters above sea level, Kareri village and Kareri lake are surrounded by thick fog and clouds. Your stay at Kareri would not be short of heaven. In our daily life, we do not get to walk among the clouds but in Kareri this is actually possible. During winters the mountains get submerged within a layer of snow and after the season ends, the snow melts and fills up Kareri Lake. It is as magical as it sounds. Located only a few kilometres away from Kareri village, you can enjoy a fun and easy trek to the lake.
3. Find Yourself By Getting Lost

More often than not, in the race to achieve great heights we end up forgetting why we started the race in the first place. There comes a point where the hustling does not help us go ahead and during those times travelling saves our souls. Kareri might just be a place to lose yourself in and in the process actually find your inner calling. Surrounded by Alpine forests, it is rich in nature and greenery, and blessed with the Himalayan mountain range it provides the much sought-after thing (that we lack in the cities) – peace.
4. Blend Of Cultures
