Question
Dear Prof Cleggsan

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Wall_of_China

The Distance between point a - starting point to b - ending point i.e. length is 2,232 km. Can people travel using Horses and Jeeps in the wall from point a to point b?. The wall road also looks wide enough.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

See this gorgeous photo:

You can tell the roadway is steep and in places long flight of steps and stairs to get up the next incline.  Further, their are guardhouses along the way that would prevent the passing of motorized vehicles.

So, in my opinion, it would not be an easy matter for traveling by vehicle or horses or jeeps or anything but by foot travelers.

What do you think?
