Down to two
meltwaterfalls:
meltwaterfalls:
Burkina Faso Niangouri
Cameroon Cases-obus de Karsiki

I could not find Niangouri not even on an archaeological map of Burkina Faso, although it is supposed to be one of the most significant archaeological sites in the country. I guess it has competing names, but I couldn't crack it.

As to Cases-obus de Karsiki (aka Kapsiki): Solivagant found out that there are two ethnic groups with cases-obus which could be meant, either the Kapsiki who live further away from Waza NP at Rhumsiki or the Mousgoum who live nearer to Waza NP. Since both Waza NP and the Kapsiki are mentioned in the name there is no way to find out which of the two was meant. I would hence suggest for us to adopt two coordinates, one for each alternative. I think this would be a more informative solution than leaving both out.
Rhumsiki 10.48333333, 13.6
Bouli Mousgoum 10.73333333, 14.68333333

Right I have added all of those in / removed the newly found duplicates

Here is the updated map

Our only missing site now is:
Burkina Faso Niangouri

For some reason if I google "Niangouri Burkina Faso" the first result I get back is Kirikongo. I can't really work out why, but it is an archaeological site in Burkina Faso.

Will keep plugging away and see if it can somehow be completed.

I have just learnt to know that Shakh Fazil in Kyrgyzstan was subsumed into Silk Roads of Kyrgyzstan TWHS and is therefore no FTWHS.

Niangouri = Kirikongo ?

We don't have to find absolute proof that it's 2 names are related but can we validate that?

In the following link, the site is entitled "Falaises de Niangouri" but I don't know if in Kirikongo there are cliffs.
