Blidinje Lake is the direct result of a glacial retreat located at 1.184 m in the valley below. This runway for ice, water and debris did not, however, manage to stop a wide range of life forms from prospering here. Accompanying some of the rocky and seemingly lifeless slopes are thick forests of pine, including the endemic white-bark pine at Masna Luka called Pinus leucodermis. Three types of wild thyme and dozens of wild flowers cover the valley and mountain sides in the spring and summer. The 3-5 km valley, situated at an elevation of 1.150-1.300 m, is dotted with the trademark stećci from medieval ages.
