The driver who drove us to the point explained how this place was discovered. He waited for the road to be clear to demonstrate the anti gravity of the point.

On the way to sangam the confluence of rivers indus and zanskar we saw the magnetic hill. The driver told about its power but he refused to go near that.So we have to believe what others says.

From leh when you go to sangam the confluence of indus and zanskar rivers you see the megnetic hill. The driver says it attracts vehicles. But he doesnot want to go nearby.So we have to believe what others are saying.
