MAGNETIC HILL

#6 of 13 things to do in Leh ladakh

 

Magnetic Hill is a mysterious phenomenon or illusion that can be experienced in a particular portion of the Leh-Srinagar highway. If you stop your vehicle at a marked spot in the highway with the engines off, the vehicle will move uphill as if it is being pulled by the mountain ranges in front. Some say it is an optical illusion while others believe it is a gravity defiling spot on earth. Guess you will have to figure it out when you visit!
