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.

Trip to LadakhIt would have been 9 or 10, If someone in Leh-Ladhak would have been there to guide. we were clueless on 1st day. Still the arrangements were good and the followup on few things would have been done which missed.
Trip to LadakhOur trip was good but it was not great as there wasn't properly communicated abut the journey timings and driver till Ladakh was great but later from Ladakh, the driver was not much interactive and we got disappointed. But the over all trip would be better with proper knowledge and we thought to try few local dishes but nobody helped us in it. And we told that few places can be discussed with driver and can visit but later it was not fulfilled. They told us some bland reasons, such as "it was not on the route", " it will cost u extra amount" etc. We were ready to pay extra also but still the driver was not ready to take us. So it turned out be good trip but best trip.

Trip to LadakhNot sure about other employees in Milli Travels, but, our contact was Ms. Firdaus, who is an excellent travel planner. during our trip to Leh Ladakh, there were several natural calamities and our entire plan was thrashed. Thanks to her, we managed to complete the trip well, with no major hiccups at all.

Trip to LadakhHi,our group of 24 pax recently went Ladakh.Overall trip was good but Leh Hotel Gongma/Dorje disappointed with ill-management.Camps in Hunder were very so so.neeed to improve.The most important is instead of asking about experience after tour completion , I hope that the Travel Triangle Tour Advisor should stay in touch with customer to see if any problem is there.that would be more fruitful.Thanks.
