The longest distance you can travel between two points in straight line without crossing any ocean or any major water bodies goes from Liberia to China. It starts at 5°2'51.59"N 9°7'23.26"W about 10 Km north of Greenville, Liberia and ends at 28°17'7.68"N 121°38'17.31"E near Wenling China.
A 13,589.31 Km walk in a straight line!

It crosses 9 time zones and 18 countries and territories.

The road goes like this: Liberia, Côte d'Ivoire, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Burkina Faso again, Niger, Chad, Libya, Egypt, Israel, the West Bank, Jordan, Iraq, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Tajikistan again and finally China.

Check out the line on google maps HERE

Segment at the Egyptian/Israeli border

So there you have it ATS, the longest walkable straight line in the World

So, anybody up for it ?!?!?

Define 'straight'. Unless you're a flat-earther.


That's pretty cool. Wonder how long it would take to walk that far...

My thoughts exactly. Let's see Bear Grylls and his camera crew survive that trek.

Walking speed is 2-3 km/hour, assuming walking for 16 hours/day, that 30 to 48 km/day. The whole distance would take between 283 and 453 days or 10 and 15 months.

Driving by car is about 10x faster, so that journey would take 1 to 2 months.
