Photographer's Note

A hill near Leh has magnetic properties which attracts metallic objects, making vehicles move up at a speed of about 20 km per hour with their engines off.

The "Magnetic Hill" is located on the Leh-Kargil-Batalik national highway, about 30 km from Leh town, at a height of 14,000 feet above sea level.

However "Wikipedia" explains this phenomenon in very different way; refer website:- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravity_hill
