According to an archaeological survey, the entire wall with all of its branches measures out to be 21,196 km.
In addition, the Great Wall of China can also be seen from the moon. The earliest known reference to this myth appear in a letter by the English antiquary William Stukeley, written in 1754. Stukeley wrote that;
This mighty wall of four score miles [130 km] in length is only exceeded by the Chinese Wall, which makes a considerable figure upon the terrestrial globe, and may be discerned at the Moon.
Source: The Family Memoirs of the Rev. William Stukeley (1887) Vol. 3, p. 142. (1754).
In 1895, an English journalist Henry Norman also mentioned this claim. He states;
besides its age it enjoys the reputation of being the only work of human hands on the globe visible from the Moon.
