This place needs no edits or filters! Why would it be when there is bountiful nature every step ahead. magnetic hill or even referred as Gravity hill will be introduced as a place where science will defy ..stop the vehicle & see for yourself when the car engines off moves uphill. it has certain magnetic properties which pulls the car...

its a magnet that doesnt really catch the attention. it actually let down by simply being nothing more than a board by the side of the road. somebody could hv been a little more explanatory about it.
