It was OK to be there but didn't quite experience anything great or extraordinary. U can't spend more than 5 mins if u r normal person but if u r scientist kind of person than it might interest u.

This was on our way from Kargil to Leh on 25th Jun2016. To experience, one need to spend bit of time, you will feel automatically, your vehicle is moving. Take care of the traffic while you do this. Nothing great about the magnetic power but the surroundings are scenic and beautiful. We enjoyed the location.

While driving on the Leh Kargil highway, you cross the area of the Magnetic Hill. A lot of people park their cars and seek the experience of positioning their cars in the spot which is supposedly having a magnetic field. The view around the area is excellent and you can view places at a distance. The very presence of so... More

This point is a short distance ahead from the Gurudwara Pathar Sahib. Does not actually look like there is magnetic power in the hills. It seems that the road is sloping towards the hill. Water dropped from bottle at the marked point also flowed in the direction of the hill.

Well! though it is a must visit place, there is nothing much. It is amazing to watch the vehicle slide uphill but that is the end. It does not take more than 10-15 mins. It is a good place for clicking some snaps :)

About 30 kms to leh towards srinagar, a part of highway and surrounding areas are considered to have magnetic effect. there is a wrong marking on the road to try out the effect. In reality, about 10 to 500 mtrs before the marking, as we proceed from leh to srinagar, there is an upward slope. If any vehicle (size and... More

The road was already downhill so even on switching off engines car would go down. I did not find anything amusing here. Maybe there should be someone to explain what actually happens coz most of the drivers a nd locals are themselves not aware.
