Strange Slope is a natural tourist attraction in China’s Liaoning Province. Its placements naturally cause things to roll uphill and prevent them from rolling downhill.

It is located at the foot of Maoshan Mountain, near the city of Shenyang, the Strange Slope scenic area is considered one of the eight natural wonders of Liaoning Province. It was discovered in 1990.

The place outrightly opposes the gravitational force. Vehicles that appear to be at the top of the slope refuse to slide or roll down to the bottom, and those at the bottom miraculously start rolling toward the top.

The Strange Slope of Liaoning has intrigued researchers and scientists. Over the years, many theories have tried to explain the unusual behavior of objects on Strange. The phenomenon is attributed to the presence of magnetic fields that cause things to behave abnormally, and a simple optical illusion.

However, no magnetic field has been detected in the area. Hence, it is believed that this is because of an optical illusion. Strange Slope is just one of many such oddities around the world, and one of at least 10 in China alone.

Strange Slope is one giant downhill slope and the attraction itself is uphill. Because it is small in relation to the surrounding area – 80 meters (262.5 feet) long and 15 meters (49.2 feet) wide – your eyes cannot differentiate the gradient and perceive it as part of the downhill slope.

However, it is a popular place of attraction for tourists.
