Situated at an elevation of 14000 feet near Leh in Ladakh, Magnetic Hill is a gravity hill that is believed to possess strong magnetic properties. To the east of this hill flows the Sindhu River, which originates from Tibet. It is said that the magnetic force at this place pulls cars uphill and forces aircraft to increase their altitude so as to escape the interference caused by the effect. Although many stories are associated with this place, scientists affirm that all of this is merely a result of an optical illusion formed by the hill.
