#12 of 114 in Things to do in Jeju
Experience the illusion of Mysterious Road (Dokkaebi Road), a road in the hilly mountain slopes north of Jeju that seems to defy gravity. Take a drive up to the 100 m (328 ft) long road and put your vehicle in neutral, you’ll feel like your car is slowly going uphill. In reality, the road has a downward slope, and the elevated surroundings create an optical illusion and play a trick on your mind, making it seem like the car is rolling upwards.

  • This mistery road is about half kilometer long. Stop you’re vehicle at the start of this road, put the gear in neutral, and turn off the engine. Your car slowly climbs up a pretty steep slope. At leas...  more »
  • just a road where if you stand and poured water or dropped a coin usually they just stay in place but on this road it moves as if the road is not straight  more »
  • Here's now known as the road of the mysteries, but went from the old towards the car, even by the way is also referred to as the village outfit outfit if you try ^ ^ as a learning opportunity.

  • It'll take about 10 minutes to see cars rolling uphill. There is a Korean archery experience and a few drink stalls along the road. It's quite fun for a while. 1. Drive to the bottom of the slope. You'll see where all the other cars are lining up. Opposite the 7 eleven. 2. Put your hazard lights on. 3. Put your car into neutral and release your brakes. 4. Watch for cars overtaking you. Tips: bring some cans or a ball to roll. Keep your kids close because cars will be overtaking each other here.
  • I've experienced this before in middle east but first time in Jeju Korea. 1. You have to pay attention to start and end signboard. 2. When u arrived at starting point, put double signal on. 3. Then change gear to Neutral then release ur feet from pressing gasoline. Dont worry your car will not roll backward/downward but instead it roll upward/forward. Have fun trying!
  • 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!
  • seems like you are going downhill/uphill but it was e opposite. try pouring water on the road or put your vehicle's gear in neutral to experience the phenomenon.
