About Jeju Mysterious Road, Jeju-si

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!

Jeju Mysterious Road, Jeju-si Reviews

  • must visit - it will blow your mind. Make sure you google and do some research before visiting as it will explain to you have to do the experiment and why it is defying gravity. This is optical illusion at GOD level

  • Beautiful scenery across the mysterious road ! Highly recommended to try the pear juice (2nd picture) - 1,000 won for each can. The corn in a cob (3,000 won for a bag) has a jelly-like texture, worth the try!

  • Very unique experience indeed. You will feel like you're driving upwards, but in fact you're driving downwards.

  • So special, without any gear, the car moves forward. Looks like a slope upward while your car will act like it is on slope downwards.

  • It's kind of weird when your car is gliding up the slope without its gear engaged. Try it and you'll know.
