The rifugio can be found close to the Laghi di Mandron, and facing the Vedrette delle Lobbie and Mandron, the glacial area of Adamello and the most extended of the Italian Alps. During the Great War, this area was the scene of numerous battles: the ruins, which have remained, are witness to this, for example trenches, outlook posts, and a small military cemetery.

Author’s recommendation

It is roughly a 3-hour walk from Rifugio Mandron to reach the Rifugio ai Caduti dell'Adamello at Lobbia Alto, firstly following the SAT 236 and then crossing the Vedretta del Mandron (partially on the glacier).
