An archaeological survey conducted by the State Administration of Cultural Heritage and the State Bureau of Surveying and Mapping that has been ongoing since 2007 has revealed itâ€™s findings on the true length and condition of Chinaâ€™s Great Wall.
Spanning 15 provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities in China, the 2012 survey report has set the entire length of the various walls at 21,196.18 kilometres.
