Dharamshala - Kareri Village – Liyoti
Following a quick morning meal, we will begin our journey to Liyoti. Walking through the dense pine jungles and remote villages, we will march down the slope for a few kilometers. After reaching a point, we will start hiking. In nearly six hours of trek, we will take a stroll along the river, cross bridges and walk on rocks. Beautiful alpine grassland, Liyoti will be our camping site for the night. It is situated at an elevation of 8038 ft.
Liyoti to Kareri Lake
The day does not involve a lot of strolling. Kareri Lake is a small mountain lake at the base of Minkani pass. The lake holds religious importance for the people, who visit here on yearly pilgrimage.
