The length of the Silk Road
The Silk Road was an extensive network of trade routes that covered thousands of miles. It is difficult to determine the exact length of the route since it consisted of different branches and paths. However, it is estimated that the Silk Road covered a distance of approximately 7,000 miles, connecting China to the Mediterranean.
