At Kyamwilu hill, about 12 kilometres from Machakos town along the Machakos-Kangundo road, lies a mysterious hill where objects defy gravity.

The phenomenon has baffled both residents and visitors, attracting a lot of onlookers.

For instance, if you pour water on the road it moves upwards instead of the opposite direction as one might expect.

Motorists have complained of their vehicles tending to be pulled downhill as they accelerate uphill. Other scholars attribute the existence of gravity hills to an optical illusion. According to this explanation, the lay of the land and the surrounding landscape create an optical illusion, thus making people confuse the downside of the hill for the upside.

At Kyamwilu hill, locals charge tourists a fee to demonstrate the phenomenon.


The demonstration includes pouring water on tarmac and setting a car in parking. The water and car begin moving uphill.
