“Optical Illusion or Sheer Power!!”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

The highlight of our Ladakh trip. This is situated near Leh on the Srinagar-Leh highway. The entire episode was shockingly awesome. We thought my Figo with 5 people and luggage equivalent to 2 people would not defy gravity but it did and went up the hill in Neutral gear!!Loved the Hill :)

“Beat gravity!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Beats science to watch water run uphill. You cant believe it even when you see it. The car moves up the slight slope even with the engine turned off. The guides are well trained to jump in and out of an unmanned moving car... good fun

“Worth once a visit”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

I just didnt wanted to leave this one point, hence went there. But really its not as great as it sounds. Its only an optical illusion, as the vehicle does moves with engine off, but its really not a slope up, but a slope down.
Its on the way to another tourist attraction (Alchi) so shouldn't miss it anyway. The surrounding views are really good though.

“Illusion.”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

But then sometimes it is better to give in to willing suspension of disbelief and go with what you see, isnt it? A group of young boys were there, proving it is nothing but an optical illusion, but what the heck, no one goes to Leh to study science. Just lose yourself in its out of the world beauty.
