Stage 3: From Capanna Bovarina to Passo Lukmanier

A not too steep ascent, through alpine pastures past the Alpe di Bovarina, leads to the Passo di Gana Negra. On the pastures, the path is not consistently well marked and requires appropriate attention. Further up it runs on and next to a narrow band with rough wacke rocks. The highlight of this tour is undoubtedly the round boulders of black clay and limestone mica schist of the Coroi series (Jura) lying like a backdrop in the landscape. Weathered garnet inclusions are often found in it. These blocks come from mostly older rock falls from Pizzo del Corvo and are more or less weathered.

The highest point of the pass is not precisely defined in the map because the transition extends over a shallow hollow. The descent is first gentle, then steep through alpine pastures down to the Lukmanier Pass. Below Foppa di Negra you get a good insight into the Vallone di Casaccia with the bizarre dolomite and roughwacke formations. The view of the Valle Santa Maria with the pine and mountain pine forests and the moorlands of national importance is also magnificent. From Hospezi Santa Maria you can take the post bus to Olivone or Disentis.
