karei lakes to me are the songs of mother nature which she sings in her different moods with different flavours and different notes, but the melody always remains the same, sometimes low sometimes high. So this time again, I ventured on a solo wandering into the mystical land of Himachal Pradesh to relish these sweet but lesser heard melodies. Choices were many, but time was limited, so I had to look for something which I could do over the weekend. Kareri Lake in Kangra had long been on my radar and it seemed to be the best option for my weekend plan. But since it was rainy season, it was not at all advisable to go to Kangra as it is deemed to be the place with highest rainfall in Himachal Pradesh. But the itch was so strong that I decided to overlook the weather. However before leaving I did check the weather forecast and it showed that it would rain heavily on Saturday and Sunday (the two days I was going to be around) with thundering and the weather would be fine on Monday (the day I was supposed to be back in the city).
