Wadi Al Jinn (Baida) - Madinah Province

4.7

Description

Located in Al Baida, Wadi al Jinn is one of the strangest and most fascinating valleys in Saudi Arabia. Situated around 24 Km northwest of Madinah, this valley is truly a mysterious place. On your way to the valley, you will reach a point where you can put your car in neutral, and it will start moving uphill. The car slowly picks up speed and can go up to 120km/h while going uphill for about 12-13 km. 

There are tons of theories as to why the car moves uphill without any apparent external force. Some suggest that the valley is inhabited by supernatural beings called Jins; others try to explain it through science and suggest that it is merely an optical illusion. 

Attractions

The valley itself attracts a lot of tourists. Some tourists set up tents and stay here for a few days. One of the biggest attractions here is quad biking. People love speeding through the dusty tracks on their quad bikes. Many people who are interested in astronomy also come here for star gazing as it provides great views of the stars after nightfall. Moreover, the peaceful and fresh atmosphere of the valley is second to none, which is why many families come here to have picnics on the weekends.

Honestly, all the rumours about the cars or any other vehicle escalating upto a speed of 100-120 km/hr when turned off are TRUE. I have experienced this myself. Also the peculiar thing about this mysterious place are the shape of it's mountains. They look like they are nibbled from the peak. There are also small holes in these mountains, which i have never seen before. You can take a look in the pictures. Definitely a must visit place in Madinah.

Subhan Allah! A place beside madina city, where no doubt your car or any vehicle after gear free. Automatically drives upto 100 to 120 speed. Really can't know actually what is the reason behind that. Either miracle or magnetic power. God Knows Better

It’s all a dry place with Rocky Mountains, on the way u will be seeing some 4-wheelers bikes and other things for entertainment but I wouldn’t prefer ppl to visit here and waste their time because of the rumours about the jins taking control over your vehicle as soon as u enter the premises of Wadi E jinn. The rumours is not fake, it’s just that for a few kilometres at when you’re about to reach there is a force that pulls car backward or downward when you’re going uphill whereas on the way back the car moves forward, the speed increases if you’re uphill. Maybe some magnetic force.

In my experience , Vehicles start to follow gravity and move in one direction only when on neutral due to higher and lower sea levels. But you can visit for yourself to judge better.
