Trek to Kareri Lake
Kareri Lake Trek is located in the Kangra Valley, in the foothills of the Dhauladhar mountain range, and is only 9 kilometers from the settlement of Kareri. Beautiful grazing area and campground where shepherds put up their camps before crossing the Dhauladhar Range through the Minkiani Pass (4250 m) and the Baleni Pass (3711 m) with their flocks of sheep and goats to roam farther to Chamba and Bharmour. Hikers, on the other hand, can be seen scouting for the best weather window to reach the summit.
It is a high-altitude, freshwater lake that is located at an elevation of 2934 meters above mean sea level. During the summer months, a flock of sheep and goats owned by local shepherds can be found grazing in the beautiful meadow surrounding the lake. The melting of new snow from high snowy mountains provides the water for the lake and rivulet. Because the lake is not particularly deep, the water clarity is excellent, and the lake bed can be clearly seen.
Himachal Pradesh’s Chandratal Lake Trek
It is situated on the Samudra Tapu plateau at a height of roughly 4300 meters. The Chandra Taal, or Moon Lake, gets its name from its crescent form. In 2005, it was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Because the lake is one of only two high-altitude wetlands in India recognised as Ramsar sites, the hike is tough. It might be considered budget-friendly if one wishes to enjoy a comparable scenery to that of Ladakh, since the Lake is located in the Spiti region of Himachal Pradesh’s Lahaul and Spiti district. In comparison to the Ladakh trek, the difficulty level is mild. The only moment the walk gets challenging is when you have to cross a river. It is, however, manageable.
Have you ever pondered how various colors of blue, yellow, and green might seem in water? In that way, this lake completes your goal. From the depths of its aquatic life, the beauty of the lake reflects each hue in the sky, making you feel at home with mother nature. It suffused with orange, pinkish battling with the hues of violet and blue at twilight, predawn changes to turquoise still blue, and with sunrise, it suffused with orange, pinkish fighting with the colors of violet and blue. It seems like the sky is Van Gogh’s vivid canvas.
Best Time to Come: June through mid-October is the best time to visit for an unforgettable experience.
Trekking in Roopkund
Uttarakhand is the location.
At 4,800 meters above sea level, Roopkund is the highest point in the area. Nainital and Kathgodam are the closest hill stations. It is situated in Garhwal’s Chamoli district. The lake is also known as “the mystery lake” since around 500 bones have been discovered at the lake’s shore. The skeletons were found alongside animal skeletons and some signs of jewelry, according to certain investigations. The bones did not rot due to the cold weather and the water surface around them.
The trip through the coniferous woods on the outskirts of the hills, highlighted by the Pindar river, is a thrilling experience. It is situated at the foot of two Himalayan peaks, Trishul and Nandghungti, and offers a taste of alpine living. The fall season follows various religious festivals, which provide color to the lives of those who live nearby. Trekking starts after passing past Lohajung on the road, with some locations suitable for camping.
Best time to visit: The weather is fairly hostile throughout the duration, thus traveling with adequate equipment is advised.
The Great Lake of Kashmir
Kashmir is the location.
With a maximum elevation of 13000 feet, the Kashmir Great Lakes Trek defies anyone’s capacity to adequately convey the whole experience. It is situated immediately before the Zojila Pass, above Sonamarg on the Srinagar-Leh route. It’s an eight-day journey from Sonamarg to Nichnai to Vishansar Lake, including altitude changes as you traverse Sonamarg. Following that, the twin lakes of Gadsar, Satsar, and Gangabal are the following camp locations.
The remoteness of its meadows and valleys teems with Maple and pine trees at intervals. As multiple brooks stream down regularly to join Nichanai, the canopy of trees embraces the shadow of light in its calm. As we approach Gadsar, we can see the panoramic view of the previously passed Tal in their depth. The lakes’ freshwater is an elixir for both the psyche and the body. It is necessary to be physically fit and have a high level of stamina. The journey is somewhat strenuous.
The best months to visit are June and September, when the spring flowers are in full bloom.
Uttarakhand is the location of the Deoria Tal Trek.
It is located 2,438 meters above sea level, 3 kilometers uphill from the villages of Mastura and Sari. Rudraprayag is the well-known area around this sky-reflecting lake. It is a 2-kilometer hike from Sari village that is suitable for novices.
This region is home to a diverse range of species. Chital and deer may be seen with a little luck. An overnight visit may result in a star-studded sky and a beautiful lake in the moonlight. At the same time, the Chaukhamba range that surrounds it offers a different view. The stunning picture is framed by other notable Himalayan mountains, all of which are snowcapped.
Perfect Time to Come: March to mid-June is the best time to visit if you want to enjoy one of the most magnificent evenings of peace. Landslides and road obstructions are common during the monsoon season. The temperature gets very cold and unpleasant throughout the winter months.
