Here gravity forgets its law. There is a span of 10 meters on road where a vehicle in neutral moves not towards slope but towards ascent. Some call it optical illussion. worth experiencing

Located about 30km from Leh on the Srinagar-Leh highway towards Kargil is a spot marked by the Border Roads Organization [BRO]. Here the road ahead seems to be going uphill. Yet if you turned off the engine and let your vehicle stand in neutral, it will slowly start moving and can go up to a speed of 20kmph on its own.But, it has nothing to do with a magnetic field and definitely not supernatural. It is all about the perception of the horizon to the viewer. One of the little larks of travelling.

I don't understand what is the buzz about this place. It wasn't anything of nice views or anything of that magnetic things. It was just the regular road with mountains on the side. We could not feel any of the magic. People climbing to the top to the sign board make it worse view though.
