1. Magnetic Hill
Cars moving on a hill is a normal occurrence. But what if you switched off the ignition and the road in question was uphill? You’d think NO WAY! But there is a way. The magnetic hill in Ladakh is one such gravity-defying hill which has become popular. Optical illusion at its best it what it is. Another gravity defying place for the science nerds is the Tulsishyam temple in Gujarat.
2. Nohkalikai Falls
The highest waterfall in India situated near one of the wettest places on Earth (Read: Cherrapunji) is totally worth your time. Nohkalikai literally translates to Fall of Ka Likai, a woman who had a tragic end at the waterfall and hence the name. A 3-4 hour trek will lead you to the falls from where you will enjoy mesmerising views that can only be experienced.
3. Living Roots Bridge
