Wadi-al-Jin, also known as Wadi-al-Baida is considered as a strange valley by locals. It is also considered as a miraculous place with undefined forces resulting in the ascending movement of vehicle accelerating on its own in neutral gear. The mysterious valley is located at a distance off 24 kilometers from Madinah-al-Munawara. There are several stories linked with the valley. Thousands of people visiting Makkah and Madinah for religious purposes visit this unique valley. Such locale is also known as magnetic hill, gravity hill and spook hills.
Several stories are linked with the uphill movement of the vehicle on this road. Some locals say that the valley in inhabited by the ghosts which tend to push the vehicle towards Madinah-al-Munawra. Some people who have spent nights at this place claim to hear ghost voices. Others claim presence of magnetic forces present in Wadi-al-Baida.
The scientists’ reasoning goes as this place is lower in altitude and appears to be ascending due to optical illusion. The actual movement of car is hence downhill rather than uphill. Several geologists and keen visitors have tried to solve the mystery and claimed that the apparent uphill movement is only due to optical illusion aided by the long distance of about 12 to 13 Kms. and surroundings.
The strange valley can be reached by taking King Fahad Road that leads to Ohud Mountain. The double road in the vicinity of Ohud Mountain leads to Ibrahim road. The Ibrahim road (30-35) km ends up at a u turn with mountain in 3 directions. After reaching the end, stop your car and apply neutral gear with no breaks applied. The vehicle at first moves slowly and then picks a speed of 120km/h for about 12 to 13 KM from the start. The precaution that needs to be followed is that the engine force must not be applied, as it can prove to be dangerous.
Many people have uploaded videos of uphill movement of vehicles in Wadi-al-Baida on many famous video uploading sites. Some have uploaded the videos of uphill flow of water as well. You can visit the Wadi-al-Baida and observe the illusionary distinct effect on your own as well.
