Description

The Monte Maletto Lodge is located at an altitude of 1701 m in an area unscathed by recent lava flows and therefore covered by a fine forest blanket. The lodge is owned by State Forestry Company, which operates it as an emergency shelter.

The small building is named after the near lateral crater famous for its dimensions and for its perfectly regular cone base shape. It can be reached via a small 880-m forest track departing from the Pista Altomontana at an altitude of 1620 m.
