Check out this mind-blowing hill in Gujarat where vehicles roll up the hill if the brakes aren’t applied.
What Is It?
A place that is free from any force of gravity is known as anti-gravity. In Gujarat, one such place exists. Although, we can’t explain the phenomenon exactly, but there have been reports suggesting that the vehicles parked close to this hill tend to roll upwards if the hand brakes aren’t applied.
That doesn’t mean people feel weightless, it is simply the balancing out of gravitational forces in this area. One such spot in India is the Tulsishyam hill in Gujarat.
What Do We Know About Tulsishyam?
There is a phenomenon called the ‘gravity hills’ that supports what is happening at Tulsishyam. The road upward that takes us to Tulsishyam creates an optical illusion for anyone traveling on the road. It makes us believe that the road going downward is actually going up.
It’s only an illusion like a mirage in the desert. Technically, the road goes upwards on the incline but due to visual illusions, we feel it otherwise.
Suppose you were going up the hill, you can easily turn your ignition off and you’ll still find yourself going up at the speed of 20 km/hr. It will seem as though you’re traveling down the hill, but you’ll manage to go up.
There are other gravity hills present in India, but this one seems to be the most memorable.
The local people of the area have a completely bizarre view of looking into this. They believe it is a supernatural phenomenon. The locals have said that this path leads them to heaven because we feel like we’re being pulled upwards.
There are a few more examples of such anti-gravity hills present around the world. In Scotland, the Electric Brae is one such hill which is a total delight to visit. The Gansu in China is also an example for the same.
