The Kareri Lake trek originates from Mcleodganj and leads to Kareri village at 1,800 meters passing through a thick pine forest and several small villages. From Kareri village there is a gradual ascend to Kareri Lake, winding and snaking through narrow ridges and embarking upon a thick forest of oak. On this trail you need to cross the Kareri Nallah several times over wooden bridge, which makes the journey more adventurous. Further, from Kareri Lake the trail descends to Bagga and thereafter to Rewa. The journey then turns to Guna Devi temple that lies at an elevation of 2,120 meters. From Guna Devi Temple the trail continues its ascend towards Triund at 2,850 meters before finally wheeling to Mcleodganj.
