I guess there is a slope!

The construction of the road is as such that slope is undetectable, But there surely a slope where the vehicle moves automatically!

Views are very great and cinematic. A very long endless seening road & huge mountains in front! You'll enjoy the huge space all around you and views. But the stories like Phenomena that defeats gravity is not working in my case.

What an experience it is to go through. Truly a wonder. A must do while you are in Leh! Make a video for sure of the car being pulled by the 'magnetic' forces.

On the Leh highway, you come across this piece of road which reads that the hill is magnetic here and you can put your car to Neutral and it will move ahead automatically due to magnetic effect. We tried and it did move but some had to say - its because there is a slope. But overall, its a timepass... More

Surprised very much that it worked out against gravity. We felt inside the car that it moves automatically for some distance. Really awesome!!!

The drive down from Leh towards Magnetic hill is a great drive. Enjoy the scenic beauty of Indus, the barren mountains. Don't forget to place your vehicle on the area marked and experience the magnetic force. Drive a little further down the road and you can reach rafting point. Also do not forget to visit the Gurudrwara Patthar Sahab on... More
