Has anyone ever walked the entire length of the Great Wall of China?



Answers:    The above answers are both correct and incorrect. It's true that the wall is broken in places, but it HAS been walked in its entirety.

When i lived in Shanghai i met a guy whose brother from South America (i think Chile, but can't remember) walked the wall.

He documented the entire trip with pictures. The journey began with him and 4 other friends, but he was alone for 9 months of the 15 month trip!

Yes!
I imagine after it was built many people walked it from end to end, eventually. It was a marvel in its time and still is. After its started to deteriorate I doubt it. However in its over 1000 years of existence I am sure someone was walked the whole thing.
I visited the great wall last year. No one has ever walked the entire length of the Great Wall. The wall is not continuous. There are sections that go for a 100 miles, then just stop completely. Then start up hundreds of miles away again. Also, much of the wall is in total ruins. Even on 5 miles I walked on, there were times when the wall was so ruined that we had to climb down and walk along side it for a few hundred feet before it was ok to climb back on.
