Magnetic hill in india

a real foot print of fact

Magnetic Hill is a gravity hill  located near Leh  in Ladakh , India . The hill is alleged to have magnetic  properties strong enough to pull cars uphill and force passing aircraft to increase their altitude in order to escape magnetic interference; in reality, the effect is an optical illusion  created by the gravity hill .

On its eastern side, flows the Sindhu, which originates in Tibet and goes to Pakistan The hill is located on the Leh-Kargil-Batalik national highway , and is bordered by the Sindhu river. The Indian Army  maintains a sikh Gurudwara  near the hill where Guru Nanak Dev , the first of the Ten Gurus of Sikhism, meditated in the 15th century. Due to both the Gurudwara and the gravity hill, the area has become a popular sightseeing destination
