5. Magnetic Hill, India

How does it feel to defy gravity? Well, there’s a stretch of road in India where you can actually experience this. About 30 km away from Leh city in the country’s northern region of Ladakh, this mysterious area is definitely a unique place on Earth.

While the road is man-made, no one could find an explanation for the fact that cars, instead of going downhill when left stationary, go backward uphill. The strange phenomenon is known as Gravity Hill among locals, and legends claim that the mysterious road leads to heaven. On the other hand, scientists explain that it may be a strong magnetic force that pulls vehicles upward.

Even military airplanes tend to avoid flying over the area. Apparently, the road somehow interferes with their devices in a strange way.
