Question
Dear Captainoutrageous

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,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
No, it is not feasible to travel the full length of the wall by vehicle, nor is it legal. There are several places where the wall is in disrepair that one might get away with driving on it, but I wouldn't recommend it.  There are many areas that are very steep with steps that are each 16" to 18" deep.
