Mysterious Road (Dokkaebi Road), Jeju

2.7
#11 of 86 in Things to do in Jeju
Experience the illusion of Mysterious Road (Dokkaebi Road), a road in the hilly mountain slopes north of Jeju that seems to defy gravity. Take a drive up to the 100 m (328 ft) long road and put your vehicle in neutral, you’ll feel like your car is slowly going uphill. In reality, the road has a downward slope, and the elevated surroundings create an optical illusion and play a trick on your mind, making it seem like the car is rolling upwards.

  • It's pretty rare. You colocás the car in neutral and moves even if the slope is down. Eye that is in the middle of the route. People put the beacons to warn that he is doing this test. It is interesting. You have other attractions so I experimentalo step

  • Very first time to visit & experience at this mysterious road. Could not believe my own eyes when I was facing (slight) downhill and the car went up while the gear was in neutral. A bit confused where to start and even that I could try out in the midst of the road...lol But if you find cars with their emergency lights on and moving very slowly, right, you got the right point to start!
  • I had to kill three hours before my flight back to Seoul so i went there. It was not up to its hip. I am sure there million of other places like this.
  • This is a really cool experience and it only takes a minute to do- I have seen mysterious roads on the travel channel before but this was my first time doing it- if you find yourself on Jeju island check it out!
  • Very interesting place. Too bad it was raining, nevertheless it's interesting.
  • The mysterious road was quite interesting. You'd be sure to find other tourists pouring water on the road to see it flow 'upwards'. The optical illusion is surprisingly legitimate. The place also features many cafes and roadside stalls with local food. A must-see location in Jeju Island.
