  • What countries does the Great Wall of China go through?

    As far as I know, Zigzagging 21,196 kilometers (13,170 miles) from Jiayuguan Pass in the west to Hushan Mountain in Liaoning in the east, the wall crosses over ten provinces and cities, including Qinghai, Gansu, Ningxia, Shaanxi, Inner Mongolia, Shanxi, Hebei,Beijing, Tianjin, and Liaoning.

    Please share if anyone knows is in details or have any source of sharing the info.

    Thanks all in advance.

    What are you talking about: The Ming Great Wall or about all Great Walls of China?

    The Ming Wall through the provinces Gansu, Ningxia, Shaanxi, Shanxi, Hebei, Beijing, and Liaoning. There is also Ming Wall in Qinghai and Hunan (but this is a different wall). The main wall touches the border of Inner Mongolia for long sections. But this wall is by far not 21,196 kilometers long.

    If you talk about the walls of all other dynasties then your list becomes much longer.

    In the title you ask about "countries". I know "Chinese Walls" in Russia, Outer Mongolia and Korea. But all of these walls are not built by the Ming.


    chinoook's 1st law: Structurally weak walls tend to have double structures.
    chinoook's 2nd law: Newer walls are built next older walls, not over them.
    chinoook's 3rd law: Similar problems lead to similar solutions.
