Magnet Hill is a "Cyclops hill" located near Leh in Ladakh, India.[1] The layout of the area and surrounding slopes create the appearance of a hill. The right hill road is actually an uphill road. Objects and cars on the left hill road may appear to roll "uphill" in defiance of gravity when they are, in fact, rolling downhill.[2]

The other two such magnetic hills are in Gujarat. One is near Bhuj (Kalo dungar - the black hills) and other at Tulsi Shyam.
