Magnetic hill is an amazing location that will baffle you with its gravity-defying property. Once you reach the place you can park your car in neutral and wait for the magic. Against all expectations, the car will start climbing the hill! There were many myths associated with the beguiling phenomenon until it was proven that it is an optical illusion. The peculiar layout of the landscape and the surrounding mountains create the illusion that we are moving uphill. But in reality, we are moving in the downward gradient. This rare illusion makes Magnetic hill one of the most visited tourist destinations in Ladakh.
