Mysterious Road (Dokkaebi Road), Jeju

#12 of 121 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.

  • If you are visiting a near by attraction such as Love Land or happen to be passing by you should check this one out. However, not worth the journey out only just for this.
  • Very mystery... Yr car put n gear and yr car can move it without put the date gear.. 啊nice experience
  • Hehehe the legend and the optical illusion here is quite good. We have one in Lake Wales, Florida, but all the growth has changed the natural landscape, so it is less impactful. Mysterious Road (Dokkaebi Road) is very enjoyable. Can be completed in 5 minutes.
  • I went there with the tour bus so.. Meh. If you drive your own car here it will be better, I guess. When on the road simply turn off your engine and watch the car moving 'up' the hill by its own (optical illusion, the car is actually going downhill). And honestly, there's not much to see there.
  • 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.
