Magnetic Hill in 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.
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 a 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 pure optical illusion not magnetic force or super natural power.
The Magnetic Hill’s geographical location and high altitude makes 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.
