screen shot from Google Maps showing walking route

In above linked image, Google Maps is showing that a distance of 293km can be covered by walking in 2 days and 12 hours. Does this estimated time include rest/sleep time or is it continuous uninterrupted walking?

1 Answer 1


It is continuous walking without interruption.


2 days and 12hrs is 60hrs.

293km/60hrs ≃ 300km/60hrs = 5km/h

the average human walking speed at crosswalks is about 5.0 kilometres per hour (km/h)

  • However (google maps shows) time is reduced if going downslope.
