If someone is very skilled at converting UTM locations to a latitude, longitude coordinate system, please try with:
http://whc.unesco.org/en/tentativelists/6414/

We have 7 out of these 14 locations already (not by converting, just by searching for the name). Would like these 7 others as well:
Hijos del Sol, Lunahuana
El Socavón, Vitor
Zegarra e Hijos, Vitor
Ghersi, Moquegua
Zapata, Moquegua
Mirave, Ilabaya
Ward, Locumba

Here are your conversions in DMS and Decimal Degrees. They map out to the correct general locations, but I do wonder if a couple coordinates may have had some slight errors when they were listed (in particular, I'm curious about El Socavón and Zegarra e Hijos).

Hijos del Sol: 12°58'54.87"S 076° 9'27.64"W ; -12.981908° -76.157678°
El Socavón: 16°25'27.00"S 071°49'9.02"W ; -16.424168° -71.819173°
Zegarra e Hijos: 16°28'58.81"S 071°56'46.61"W ; -16.483003° -71.946281°
Ghersi: 17°18'12.23"S 070°59'18.29"W ; -17.303398° -70.988415°
Zapata: 17°14'15.08"S 070°58'56.73"W ; -17.237521° -70.982425°
Mirave: 17°27'29.94"S 070°32'11.69"W ; -17.458317° -70.536581°
Ward: 17°30'21.71"S 070°43'12.93"W ; -17.506031° -70.720258°

The dot for Vjetrenica cave is slightly off. Google has the correct location and I can verify the entrance is there.

Baroque Temples of Collao: San Pedro Martir, Juli seems off. I think it should be there: -16.212766, -69.460279

The Xinjiang Yardangs have two "locations", I say that in quotes because these areas are incredibly huge. The current location is for the massive Junggar basin in the northern part of Xinjiang.
The other one, Hami basin, stretches all the way to Lop Nur which wikipedia has as 40.166667, 90.583333 so I would plant it right in-between the two (city and nuclear site).

Els,

i guess all except one need to be light grey?

If someone is up for some location research: I am looking for the exact coordinates of Karaman-ata and Shakpak-ata, both part of the new Kazakh Rocky Mosques TWHS http://whc.unesco.org/en/tentativelists/6566 (have already the other 3 locations)

It seems that the coordinates on the Unesco website are actually the decimal coordinates.
So, for example for Karaman-ata: N43.90 E51.88 instead of N43 90 E51 88
This is close to the correct location.

The exact coordinates are:
Karaman-ata: 43.90014217269035, 51.872025200405034
Shakpak-ata: 44.43357286314319, 51.13824254031332

One of the silk road spots is in the Gulf of Guinea, that can't be right - although according to some "Kazakhstan is the Greatest" I don't think they had such a reach :)

Yeah, it was because I cannot find the location for Kyzyl kala Ancient Settlement (Kazakhstan)
