Site Rationale Link
Central Amazon Conservation Complex 3 hours in a boat are necessary to reach the park entrance of Jau. The 2nd location, Anavilhanas, is closer but also boat only.
Chiribiquete National Park Walk in only (there were illegal airstrips on some tepuis during the heydays of the illegal drugs production though).
Darien National Park On foot
Great Himalayan National Park Only on foot
Lena Pillars Only by boat
Los Katios National Park Only by boat via the Atrato river.
Madriu-Perafita-Claror Valley On foot - however if you look at page 7 of the nomination dossier, you'll see that the park border has a tip where it crosses a road. It's unsure whether one can enter the park from there.
Nahanni National Park By float plane or canoe/kayak (although hiking is also possible)
Pantanal Core zone only by boat
Puerto-Princesa Subterranean River Boat only
Putorana Plateau By helicopter. AB ev: “The nominated property is only readily accessible by helicopter from an airport near to Norilsk, located about 200 km north-west from its western border, or by boat along the lakes, but navigation on the only water course (Norilka River) leading to the Lama Lake is difficult.”
Rio Abiseo National Park Best by boat (or hike)
Rio Platano Biosphere Reserve Only access by boat or plane
Rock Paintings of the Sierra de San Francisco On foot or on horseback: "This trip is best suited for people who are active and in good physical shape. The hiking is on rough, uneven trails and the temperatures are often very warm. There is the option of riding horses instead of hiking as well."
Rwenzori Mountains On foot
Sagarmatha National Park On foot
