Mount Kellett is the third highest peak in Hong Kong Island, with a height of 501 meters. The name comes form the British Royal Navy Vice Admiral Henry Kellett, the captain of HMS Starling in the 19th century. Mount Kellett is not included in the country park area, and most of the area have been developed to private properties, only small paths to the summit, thus Mount Kellett is not a popular place for hiking.
