Magnetic Hill, Leh

(2/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Turn off your engine and put your vehicle in neutral to see a natural optical illusion at Magnetic Hill. Some call the phenomenon a "gravity hill," because objects moving downhill appear to be going uphill, thus defying a natural law. Though local myths have suggested a magnetism stronger than gravity lies in the hills here, the fun effect is actually a trick of the mind, with surrounding hills obstructing the horizon and confusing the way the eye perceives the lay of the land. Bring your video camera. A visit to Magnetic Hill represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Leh vacation planner to plot your vacation.
