The "Magnet Hill" is located on the Leh-Kargil-Srinagar national highway, about 30 km from Leh, at a height of 11,000 feet above sea level.

On its south side flows the Indus, which originates in Tibet and carries to Pakistan. The magnetic hill has become a popular stop for domestic tourists on car journeys.

Magnetic hill is one of the famous offbeat destinations of India. In reality, it is just the optical illusion effect and there is no magnetic disturbance at all. This self-profound magnetic hill is one of the popular stops for domestic tourists to experience nature’s mysterious ways.

This is a remarkably common illusion that is found in numerous locations around the world.  Usually it is a stretch of road in a hilly area where the level horizon is obscured.

Apart from the Magnetic Hill, you can also enjoy seeing a few other places that lie at a close distance from the hill. The Himalayan region here is truly worth exploring.
