Howletts Hut (8 beds, wood-burning stove, firewood available in locality, tank water) is a club-maintained hut, administered by DOC, below the 1682m Taumatamekura Peak and the last rest heading north before the infamous Sawtooth Ridge.

The hut sits in a sheltered hollow on the Daphne Ridge just where the tussock ends and beech forest starts to lap over the ridgeline, providing convenient firewood, but giving unimpeded views of the ranges and plains around Ongaonga.
