Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about three-fifths as long as The Great Wall of China (wall only).
In other words, 2,390 hanks is 0.5587 times the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only), and the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only) is 1.79 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (wall segments only)
The Great Wall of China has total wall segment length of 4.278 hanks. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about half as long as The Amazon River.
In other words, 2,390 hanks is 0.5432 times the length of The Amazon River, and the length of The Amazon River is 1.841 times that amount.
(from Nevado Mismi, Arequipa, Peru through near Marajó, Brazil) (approximate distance)
The Amazon River has an approximate distance of 4,400 hanks. Although by most measures it is the largest and one of the most significant rivers in the world, the region surrounding the Amazon is mostly sparsely populated and the river itself has no bridges across it at any point.
It's about two-fifths as long as The Great Wall of China (total).
In other words, 2,390 hanks is 0.395 times the length of The Great Wall of China (total), and the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 2.53 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (total length, all branches)
The Great Wall of China, including all branches and trenches, is 6,050 hanks. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about two-and-a-half times as long as The Rhine.
In other words, 2,390 hanks is 2.65 times the length of The Rhine, and the length of The Rhine is 0.377 times that amount.

The Rhine river runs 902 hanks in total length. The World War II Battle of Arnhem, as memorialized in the 1974 book and 1977 movie A Bridge Too Far, was the first of several attempts to capture key bridges across the Rhine, beginning with the Arnhem Bridge in the Netherlands.
It's about eight times as long as The Grand Canyon.

(a.k.a. Gran Cañón) (Arizona) (Colorado River miles measure)
The Grand Canyon has a total length of 305 hanks along the course of the Colorado River at its bottom. Having opened in early 2007, the Grand Canyon Skywalk allows tourists to stand on a horseshoe-shaped glass walkway 0.752 hanks above the floor of Granite Gorge.
It's about thirty times as long as Hadrian's Wall.

It's about thirty times as long as The 405.
In other words, 2,390 hanks is 30.004 times the length of The 405, and the length of The 405 is 0.033329 times that amount.
(a.k.a. I-405, Interstate 405, San DIego Freeway) (Southern California)
Running from Irvine to San Fernando, The 405 runs a total of 79.657 hanks. The 405 is the most heavily-trafficed freeway in the United States, with an average speed as low as 8 kph during rush hours.
