A short distance from the city, the 200 metre stretch of road is utterly normal looking, but for one fact. Any car left stationary on the road will start to roll uphill. The same is true for any liquids dropped on the surface. This apparently contemptuous defiance of gravity delights everyone who visits the road. Luckily, this is a mere optical illusion. The countryside around the hill rises high, creating the illusion that the road is rising as well. In truth, there is a slight downslope to the hill. Still, it's a mind-bending sight and absolutely worth checking out!

  • Very first time to visit & experience at this mysterious road. Could not believe my own eyes when I was facing (slight) downhill and the car went up while the gear was in neutral. A bit confused where to start and even that I could try out in the midst of the road...lol But if you find cars with their emergency lights on and moving very slowly, right, you got the right point to start!

  • I had to kill three hours before my flight back to Seoul so i went there. It was not up to its hip. I am sure there million of other places like this.

  • This is a really cool experience and it only takes a minute to do- I have seen mysterious roads on the travel channel before but this was my first time doing it- if you find yourself on Jeju island check it out!

  • Very interesting place. Too bad it was raining, nevertheless it's interesting.

  • The mysterious road was quite interesting. You'd be sure to find other tourists pouring water on the road to see it flow 'upwards'. The optical illusion is surprisingly legitimate. The place also features many cafes and roadside stalls with local food. A must-see location in Jeju Island.
