A must experience place to see your car automatically climbing steep hill with it's engine off.. Secondly, the place also has good scenic beauty of hills to click pictures.

This place is worth visit because if you leave your vehicle in idle condition on the marked place,the vehicle automatically crawls...It looks like there is some magnetic zone at the place..Really amazing to see the nature's mysterious Beauty..

Magnetic Hills still remains a mystery spot for me. one can see the road elevated in the other direction when you see the road in both directions.. something which is quite perplexing only maybe some one with great knowledge of Physics can explain this phenomenon

There is just one hill that says magnetic and a road in front of it that has some magnetic effects on the car for about 5 seconds. Can be avoided.

Yes it will be..

Certainly this is not a hoax. May be you did not reach the right place. You visited Leh from Manali, so of course you would not have seen this place which is on Srinagar Leh highway, about 40 KM short of Leh. Not a waste of time, people visit this place out of curiosity.

All I can do is smile on you Kashyap. Your "BS" comment speaks a lot about your ignorance. Please travel more, it opens one's eyes. And see the world yourself. If you need some more education on Magnetism, I can offer you... More
