    At the North Pole - there's a huge magnetic lode not too far from the geographic North Pole and that's whe our compasses are guided by.

    To find any of directions is easy, if you wake up early in morning. Just try to locate from where sun arises? It arises from east. Now face the east, left to you is north, right to you is south, back to you is west. You can also use compass. Thanks

    The compass has been used for centuries as a tool for navigation.
    It is an instrument that aligns a free pivoting bar magnet (called the
    needle) in Earth's magnetic field.
    Since the invisible lines of the magnetic field are oriented in a
    north/south direction, the needle will orient itself in a north/south
    direction. The other cardinal points of the compass (east, west, and
    south) are defined in relation to north.
    Pilots use a compass to determine direction when flying airplanes.
    Boaters, hikers, and hunters are examples of other people who rely
    on compasses.
