Magnetic Hill, Leh

1.8
#2 of 12 in Nature in Leh
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. Make Magnetic Hill a part of your Leh vacation plans using our Leh online vacation builder .
