The trek to Bleni Pass goes from the left of Kareri Lake through a very thick dense forest along sloping ridges below which are deep gorges and ravines. The region is full of wild life. Bleni Pass is at a low altitude and is a easier pass. It is frequented mostly by Gujjars and Gaddis from the nearby villages because of extensive pasturelands. Clusters of dense conifers and different kinds of perennial flowers are a rare treat offered by this place. The distances are longer along this pass as compared to Minkiani Pass and the trails are confusing.
