Magnetic Hill, Ladakh

The Magnetic Hill in Ladakh is a road stretching on the Leh to Kargil national highway in the Himalayan region at an altitude of 14,000 KMs which is about 30 km from Leh. Magnetic Hill has Sindhu River flowing in its east which gives it picturesque beauty with the background of magnificent Himalayan Mountains. Magnetic Hill of Ladakh is also known as the ‘gravity hill’ since the area layout and the surrounding land creates an optical illusion by making a downhill slope appear to be an uphill slope. So, if a car is kept in neutral gear, it will start rolling uphill against gravity up to 20 Km per hour speed on its own. It is conceived that this mysterious wonder happens due to magnetic force. Hence the aircraft flying on this region increase its altitude to escape the influence of the magnetic field. Some people just drive through this region without knowing this effect. But those who know would stop their car at the spot to experience this mystical happening. This effect will work only at the right spot not anywhere else.

Magnetic Hill Myth

Magnetic Hill has an eccentric belief attached to it. The local people of the place has a view that earlier this road was the gateway to heaven. The people who did good deeds were taken directly to heaven through this road.

Magnetic Hill Illusion

This story states that there is no presence of any magnetic force on Magnetic Hill. It defines the gravity-defying phenomenon which states that the optical illusion makes the Magnetic Hill look like an upslope because the optical illusion causes downslope.

Activities to Do at Magnetic Hill

Magnetic Hill is a scenic place where one can admire the natural and surreal beauty of nature. One thrilling activity which one should definitely try in Magnetic hill is quad biking which is one thrilling experience of the lifetime. Another interesting thing to do here is to experience the gravity phenomenon by placing your car at neutral gear at the yellow box which is near Magnetic Hill only. After some time, you will notice the car moving on its own at a speed of 20km/hr. This is a great experience to witness here in the Magnetic Hill.

The BRO (Border Roads Organization) has marked the spot by putting a billboard and a yellow box on the Magnetic Hill road to let the people know the right spot. Local village people of this area believe that this place has supernatural powers and this path will lead to heaven. They have folklore that says that the good people will be pulled on to this path while the others will be left out. But in reality, it is a purely optical illusion not magnetic force or supernatural power.

Magnetic Hill’s geographical location and high altitude make the magic here. To experience this peculiar effect, pack your bags and start towards Magnetic Hill in Ladakh and forget about reality for some time and be mystified in the beauty of this unbelievable place.

    • Trip to Ladakh

      Thanks to Explarience, we were able to create so many memories and enjoy one of the most satisfying and joyful trips to Leh. We booked the trip in Jan and went by end of April. Emmanuel was the coordinator from the travel agency and he was very helpful in explaining the itinerary and giving us a very competitive quote. All the arrangements were very good and up to the mark. Sharing the overall positives and areas of improvement. What we liked : The hotel in Leh - Kidaar was superb. Everything was spot on - the location, people, services, food etc. This is was the best part of the trip. The Mountain Camp in Nubra was fine as well . In Pangong, since the tents were demolished , we were shifted to Pangong Residency Hotel, which was a blessing in disguise as it was extremely cold and would have been a nightmare to stay outdoors . In short, all accommodations were fine. The food was basic but tasty at Pangong and Numbra (Kidaar had a huge tasty spread for bkfast and dinner) and that's okay considering the adverse ,remote locations and the scarcity of necessities in these places. Our driver Stanzing Meyo was excellent driver with good knowledge around the places. You need skillful and dexterous drivers here as the roads are super dangerous. Overall, the goods weigh much over the issues we faced. What could be improved : We were not explicitly told that this was not really the season and hence it was supremely cold even in Leh. We did our study and found out the weather conditions and luckily carried the thermals that were a must on all days. We were stuck in Changla for 6 hrs and atleast 3 hours of it contributed to the low maintenance of the vehicle. The chains that were to be tied to the tyres were broken and it could not be fixed on the tyres and without it the vehicle could not brave the ice-ladden roads. These precautions or inspections of basics should be done before the trip starts. Nevertheless, the driver tried his best to get things going. Me, my husband and my daughter thoroughly enjoyed the trip and everything was very smooth from planning perspective. Thanks to the Explarience team. They did a great job. We would definitely recommend them to family and friends. In fact, we have already been getting queries from our friends and we are directing them to Explarience. Travel Triangle folks - No one contacted us to brief on anything except reminders for payments and a couple on times, when we wrote some concern mails when situation was not so good in the valley during Mar. We expected a better response from them.

    Absolutely. In fact, you will have plenty of time left to check out monasteries in Phey and Spituk.

    It is a point where the backdrop of snow-covered mountains and the view of road offers an interesting illusion that vehicles are moving uphill without any force.

    The famous Magnetic Hill is located about 27 kilometres from Leh on Leh–Srinagar Highway.
