I don't think it is that straight forward.

  1. First Export List using Central Admin Backup Restore option (List.cmp)
  2. Change extension from cmp to cab
  3. Extract files to a folder
  4. Open file SystemData.XML and change version to
  5. Change Build to the Build Version of your server. You can use PowerShell to find it out
  6. Now re pack the folder into .cab file using CabPack
  7. Change extension to cmp
  8. Open Management Shell in 2013 and execute below command

    Import-SPWeb -Identity http://siteurl -Path cmpfilepath.cmp -verbose
