Everyone who passes through the mysterious road of Jeju, really thinks that something enigmatic is happening! Is it witchcraft or some kind of strange magic? What form of sorcery could this be? If you think it is, you’ve been tricked! Have you ever seen things move uphill instead down? Objects and liquid seem to roll up rather than go down in Jeju’s mysterious road. The Mysterious Road of Jeju or Dokkaebi road, lies on a hill at the foot of a mountain, connecting two roads of Jeju island. The crazy phenomenon of what seemed like gravity defiance is actually caused by an optical illusion due to the high surroundings. On the surface, this upward movement appears to defy the laws of gravity but in reality, the phenomenon is just a mere optical illusion. A slight downhill slope appears to be an uphill slope due to the seemingly high surroundings, creating an optical illusion that objects roll uphill.
If you think that this is unbelievable, better check it out and experience the thing for real!
The infamous road still continues to baffle minds and amaze visitors with its very unique concept that both attracts and confuses spectators from all over the world.
