Wadi Wurayah National Park (T)

Christravelblog Netherlands - 10-Jan-22

I tried to visit the Wadi during my UAE trip late december. It was more a family leisure trip as ticking off WHS/TWHS but of course I (mostly without family) did visit all TWHS except those in Abu Dhabi.

Regarding Wadi Wurayah no review just a note: It's closed since 2012 until further notice. There is no plans to re-open at the moment. Entrance is guarded and no way to go in. Road further down was in not nice condition (not long used). This is to restore wildlife and nature.

Later at Mleiha Archaeological Museum I spoke to a person of the museum about WHS and he actually was from the Wurayah area and worked on the submission documents! He also confirmed it's closed and no plans to re-open. He said there are just a couple of yearly expeditions into the Wadi, scientific.

Tobago Main Ridge Forest Reserve (T)

Tobago Main Ridge Forest Reserve (T)

Ticking of WHS is one thing for me but also ticking of countries (I love lists) and with direct flights on KLM from Amsterdam to Trinidad & Tobago I just had to go. Of course also visiting the various TWHS.


How to get to Tobago Main Ridge Forest Reserve

I would say: by car only. Plus you have to get to Tobago as well. At the moment (pandemic) you can only get there from Trinidad. There are no international flights.


The site

The forest reserve covers a huge part of northern Tobago. A road crosses it from where you can make hikes of various length. The forest is mainly interesing for birth watchers as there are more as 200 and of which 30% is endemic.

La Brea Pitch Lake (T)

La Brea Pitch Lake (T)

Ticking of WHS is one thing for me but also ticking of countries (I love lists) and with direct flights on KLM from Amsterdam to Trinidad & Tobago I just had to go. Of course also visiting the various TWHS.


How to get to the Pitch Lake

I would say: by car only. On Trinidad public transport is not reliable (except maybe to Maracas beach). Hiring a taxi for a fixed price will do the trick but do count on an easy 100 USD as Trinidad IS expensive! Probably it's better to hire a car for approximate 50 USD / day. You can combine a visit here to the Banwari Site (another TWHS).

Markovi Kuli (T)

Christravelblog Netherlands - 18-Jul-21

Markovi Kuli (T)

When I drove from Skopje to Lake Ohrid I made a stop in Prilep for a visit to Markovi Kuli. Let me start with the fact that it would be better to include it as Natural & Cultural? There is an old fort on the top and a beautiful old monastery as well. It's all within the boundaries proposed. A LARGE sign is at the foot of the mountain where you go to the fort where it clearly states it's on the tentative list :-) I drove up to the fort as far as I could with a sedan. Don't park at the sign just drive until the road gets to bad. At the top I spend an hour or so enjoying the view.
