    Magnet Hill is a gravity hill located near Leh in Ladakh, India.[1] The layout of the area and surrounding slopes create the optical illusion of a hill. The hill road is actually a downhill road. Objects and cars on the hill road may appear to roll uphill in defiance of gravity when they are, in fact, rolling downhill.[2] It is 7.5 km southeast of Nimmoo and 26.5 km west of Leh on Srinagar-Ladakh road.

    We have read stories about the mirage in a desert, but can there be a mirage on a hill as well? Can there be a place on earth which is absolved from the effects of gravitational force? How would you feel if your vehicle starts moving uphill on its own and without the use of handbrakes?

    It is a reality

    Apparently, the phenomenon of witnessing your vehicle or any object creeping uphill at a speed of 20 KMPH even though you set it into neutral at the base of the hill is a reality. Visit a place known as Tulsishyam in Gujarat to behold the strange occurrence.

    What makes Tulsishyam unique?

    For the starters, Tulsishyam is a place situated on the border of Amreli district and Junagadh district, in the Gir forest national park in Gujarat. It is famous for the 3,000 year-old Krishna temple and houses a hot water spring known for its healing powers. Another highlight of Tulsishyam is the famous anti-gravity hill which is nothing but the balancing out of gravitational forces in the region.

    The secret behind it

    In reality, these are not crooked vortexes in the Earth’s gravitational field; rather they are purely optical illusions occurring due to the structure of land on either side of the road. It may look that the cars, water and balls are rolling up hill, but in reality they are sloping downward, the way they should be. The horizon line and other attributes of the surrounding vistas trick the brain into assuming the slope as uphill. Yet, it is difficult for the ordinary brain to accept the truth.

    A supernatural hill?

    The superstitious people living in this area beg to differ from the ‘anti-gravity’ theory. They harbour a belief that this phenomenon is actually a supernatural occurrence. They say that this way goes all the way to heaven because it feels like we are being pulled upward. It is still better in the sense that they do not attribute the phenomenon to be the work of some ghost or evil force unlike their Western counterparts.

    More examples…

    Tulsishyam is not the only place to have anti-gravity hills. The Electric Bae in South Ayrshire (Scotland), the Gravity Hill in Prosser (Washington), the Confusion Hill in Piercy (California) and the Magnetic Hill in Black Rock (Australia) are also similar places located in different parts of the world.

    Aren’t they intriguing enough?

    All about the Magnetic Hill in Ladakh

    This hill in Ladakh is home to a strange phenomenon that defies gravity

    Upasya Bhowal July 01 , 2020 03 Min Read

    We all know what happened when Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water. While it was a most unfortunate event, it is by no means surprising because indeed tumbling down a hill is what usually happens. However, what if we tell you that there is a hill in India where, instead of rolling downwards, things actually go uphill? Never heard of any such thing? Well then, it is time to introduce you to the wonder that is Magnetic Hill.

    This small stretch of road, located about 30km from Leh City, is unique because of its outright defiance of gravity. A part of the Leh-Kargil Highway, this road attracts stationary vehicles upwards. When left with the engine off, a car can roll up at a speed of 20km/hr on this hill. Due to this extraordinary phenomenon, it has been given many names like ‘Mystery Hill’ and ‘Gravity Hill’. Situated at a height of 14,000 feet above sea level, the Sindhu river runs on the eastern side of this hill.

    The Myth

    Some magnetic force is believed to draw the car uphill

    While there definitely exists scientific explanations for this curious occurrence, locals in the area will tell you a completely different story. Villagers in Ladakh believe that this road once led to heaven. Deserving members would automatically be pulled there whereas those who were undeserving could never find their way to it.

    The Science

    There are two theories that can explain the reason behind this uphill movement. The most common one is that the hill has a strong magnetic force which is why it pulls vehicles in the vicinity. In fact, so strong is this magnetic force that planes of the Indian Air Force avoid this route so that they don’t face magnetic interference on their devices.

    Another equally popular theory is that of an optical illusion. According to this, the hill does not really have a magnetic force but it just creates an optical illusion of sorts so that the road, which actually goes downhill, seems as if it goes uphill. Therefore, when you see the vehicle going upslope, it is actually the opposite and does not defy the laws of nature.

    The Destination

    The signboard at the Hill

    Authorities have put up a billboard in the area stating the exact spot where this phenomenon can be observed. A yellow box marked on the road indicates the exact point where the car should be parked in neutral. From there, it can be seen climbing slowly up the hill.

    When To Visit

    While this road is open throughout the year, the best time to visit Magnetic Hill would be between July and October. The roads are clear during this time and the drive will not be a hassle.

    Things To Keep In Mind

    The city of Leh

    The Magnetic Hill is part of a barren region about 30km from Leh. Therefore, apart from tourists, it is more or less a secluded area. While you may find a couple of homestays in the area, it is always advisable to check into a hotel at Leh City and drive to the hill from there. There are also not many food joints or restaurants in the area, so make sure you have packed enough food before you set out on your journey to this mystery hill.

    The Magnetic Hill in Ladakh in fact has a sibling in Armenia. Known as Mount Aragat, this hill also seems to be going upwards when it actually goes downslope!
