The magnetic hill of Leh (Ladakh)
30 minutes from the city of Leh and 3650 meters high , there is a sign announcing to drivers the presence of a magnetic hill trapped between the mountains and skies of the Himalayas . In fact, if you decide to take your car up the hill road, possibly the car will be dragged without using the steering wheel. A phenomenon that has an explanation that weighs the initial surprise, the optical vision of an absent horizon that gives us the impression of ascending constantly up the slope.
Prabalgad Fort (Maharashtra)
Also known as Kalavantin Durg , this fort built in the 6th century BC stands on top of a 700-meter hill in the state of Maharashtra .
