It's about one-and-three-fifths times as long as The Danube.
In other words, 3,170.130 hanks is 1.630 times the length of The Danube, and the length of The Danube is 0.6130 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Donau, a.k.a. Dunaj, a.k.a. Dunav, a.k.a. Duna, a.k.a. Дунав (Dunav), a.k.a. Dunărea, a.k.a. Дунáй (Dunay), a.k.a. Tuna) (from Breg Martinskapelle, Black Forest, Germany through the Danube Delta, Romania)
The Danube river runs 1,950 hanks in total length. Intersecting Vienna, Austria; Bratislava, Slovakia; Budapest, Hungary; and Belgrade, Serbia, the Danube touches more capital cities than any other river.
It's about half as long as The Great Wall of China (total).
In other words, 3,170.130 hanks is 0.5240 times the length of The Great Wall of China (total), and the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 1.910 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 twice as long as The Colorado River.
In other words, 3,170.130 hanks is 1.990 times the length of The Colorado River, and the length of The Colorado River is 0.5030 times that amount.

The Colorado River runs 1,590 hanks in length. Along this length, the river descends from its source, approximately 1.880 hanks above sea level in the Rocky Mountains, to its mouth in the Gulf of California.
It's about one-third as long as The Diameter of Earth.
In other words, 3,170.130 hanks is 0.363587930 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 2.75036630 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 8,719.0186 hanks at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 71.50 hanks.
It's about three-and-a-half times as long as The Rhine.
In other words, 3,170.130 hanks is 3.510 times the length of The Rhine, and the length of The Rhine is 0.2850 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Rhein, a.k.a. Rijn, a.k.a. Rhin, a.k.a. Rain, a.k.a. Reno, a.k.a. Rhenus, a.k.a. Ryn) (from near Reichenau, Switzerland through Hoek van Holland, Rotterdam, Netherlands)
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 one-tenth as long as The Circumfrence of Earth.
In other words, 3,170.130 hanks is 0.115733630 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 8.64053080 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 27,391.6050 hanks. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
It's about ten-and-a-half times as long as The Grand Canyon.
In other words, the length of The Grand Canyon is 0.0962 times 3,170.130 hanks.
