India is just bonkers – a land of mysteries with secrets and wonders in so many places. On Tuesday we’re heading up to Srinegar in Kashmir way oop north, almost as far north as you can go before things start to get a bit awks with Pakistan. About time we had a bit of spice! Kashmir’s going to be unquestionably beautiful, and lucky for us it turns out we have some even better reasons to go!
“The Magnetic Hill, located at an altitude of 11,000 feet above sea level in the hills of Ladakh is one of the most unusual places to visit in India. The Mystery: Cars driving up the hill get pulled up of their own accord. That is, one can drive up here with the ignition of their vehicles turned off.”
FACTS. I actually love that the mystery of this exciting phenomenon is only an optical illusion, resulting from the hill’s gravitational pull. It’ll probably end up being a bit shit, and not quite as advertised. #soindia.
There are some other decent detour ideas for Dumball 2017 that Fletch and I can discuss over Chai when he flies in on Tuesday. Beyond excited to hear his David Bowie impression, he’s just got to nail the jet lag.
The title of this blog’s also a cheeky plug for my friends mysterious and immersive gaming experience Lady Chastity’s Reserve, which you should all totally check out by the way. They’ve got venues in London and Brighton. Get involved!
