There has been a request to include a list of the WHS that have not been "reviewed" yet by the visitors of this website or myself. The query is a bit too heavy to put on the website permanently, but here's the list to date (21/10/2014):

Noel Kempff Mercado National Park

Virunga National Park
Salonga National Park
Air and Ténéré
Darien National Park
Sub-Antarctic Islands

I know this list is old but it would be nice to see the updated list, although I believe there should be a purge of all these ancient reviews that just say 1 or 2 lines such as "(sic) itz best place in world!", usually a very patriotic review about their own sites before registration was compulsory.

(I'm on a train now in Poland, so my query might be sloppy)

Would be a nice travel goal to try and visit 1 of these each year...

I could do Blue and John Crow but there is nothing really to say on the basis of my visit!! The interesting areas got knocked out during the "deferral period" ( "WHS was called "Blue and John Crow Mountains National Park", but large parts of national park were moved to buffer zone during final nomination stages") and I was left with a very "minimal" core zone entry! Nannytown is the main thing to see in what remains plus possibly the Blue Mountain summit but am unlikely to go back to Jamaica for them - especially as already have both T List sites at Port Royal and Seville "in the bag" if they are ever inscribed.

High %age of remote/costly "Islands" in unreviewed ones. Not sure there are many among them "worth" the cost in money and time. But some are missing? "1036 of 1073 WHS have been reviewed by our community" so there should be 37 as against 31 in the above list?.

Cocos Island National Park is another one which has not been reviewed. An amazing place to visit, but also an extremely costly journey (I have seen prices in the order of $3.500 (not sure of the accuracy of this one), or $5.000-$6.000 per person for a 10-12 days trip from Puntarenas.

A few are mainly underwater locations:
Papahanaumokuakea. The area around Hawaii is now closed to the public and you can't go there without a research team... There is a museum on Big Island about it though.
Phoenix Islands, needs a charter boat to reach the protected area. There are some dive boats that visit once in a while but highly expensive.
The Bikini Atoll requires a permit to dive, it will also set you back $10,000 for a tour plus the airfares to get to Majuro in the first place. Purely wreck diving.

Heard and McDonald Islands are regularly done by cruise but not cheap...

Plus the Lorentz National Park "reviews" are ads. That's what I was trying to say, a lot of the list are probably not actually reviewed.

Qinghai Hoh Xil I can review when I find my pictures. Tianshan when I get there :)

There are 4 only reviewed by me! (Erbil, Rwenzori, Meroe, Virunga). That makes 35.
The other 2 may be an error on the homepage, will look into that query.

I think it would still make a good review, especially the part about the buffer zones. You don't have to cover a place 100% to have an experience there.

The others are Cocos Island and Qinghai Hoh Xil indeed. They did not show up in my query because I have a disabled review for them.
