Turn off your engine and put your vehicle in neutral to see a natural optical illusion at Magnetic Hill. Some call the phenomenon a "gravity hill," because objects moving downhill appear to be going uphill, thus defying a natural law.

Bring your video camera. Make Magnetic Hill a part of your Leh vacation plans using our Leh online vacation builder.
