India to Nepal Distance
Being well-connected to some major countries through the network of roadways, railway stations and airways, it is quite easy to figure out how to go to Nepal. With numerous India to Nepal flights, including nonstop and one-stop flights operating from different cities of the country, one can cover the India to Nepal distance of around 1010 kms in less than 2 hours. Other than airways, crossing the border by road is the most popular means of commuting from the major Indian cities. There are well-maintained roadway and railway networks as well.
The main airport in Nepal is the Tribhuvan International Airport, 5 kilometres away from the city centre of the capital Kathmandu. It is the busiest one in the country and also the only international airport that connects Nepal with the rest of the world. Those living in North India can also consider travelling via roadways for their convenience, especially from Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar region. The regions where border-crossing is allowed are Sunauli in UP, Raxaul in Bihar, Banbasa in Uttarakhand and Panitanki in West Bengal.
Nepal Visa Application Information
Indian citizens are not required to acquire a visa to enter Nepal. Though, in order to travel by flight, one needs to show a valid passport or Voter ID at the immigration centre. However, visitors from other foreign countries can obtain a visa-on-arrival at the Kathmandu Airport.
Now, just go through our guide to find out how to reach Nepal from India via different modes of transport.
There are multiple flights from Delhi to Nepal on a daily basis, and many of them are direct. The nonstop flights are operated mostly by Air India, Jet Airways, Indigo and Nepal Airlines. Though, India to Nepal flight duration for these flights is around 1 hour 45 minutes, often the flights take longer to reach because of the layovers at Delhi. However, flights are the best means of transport to reach India from Nepal, especially if you are not from the northern part of the country.
The historic British-era Nepal train line running from Janakpur in Nepal to Jayanagar in India was shut down in 2014 and is currently under upgrade. Besides that, there are several India-Nepal railway lines, including ones connected with New Jalpaiguri, Jogbani and Nepalganj Road. For now, there is no direct India to Nepal train. However, Gorakhpur and Raxaul being the closest stations on the Nepal route, one can take trains up to there and make the rest of the journey by road. There are trains from Howrah Station near Kolkata to the Raxaul Junction at the border.
India to Nepal distance from Delhi to Kathmandu via roadway is around 21 hours. Coincidentally, this is also one of the better routes to get into Nepal. The most-used India-Nepal border is the one at Sunauli, Uttar Pradesh. This can be reached via Gorakhpur by train from Delhi. Other borders that can be used to get into Nepal are Raxaul which can be reached from Kolkata or Patna. Raxaul and Gorakhpur are the nearest railway stations to Nepal in India.

Trip to NepalTravel Agent given good response. But cab provided for pokhara is not in good condition. Also driver is not cooperative, not understanding our communication which resulted we didn't satisfied that part of the tour which covers 60 percent of our tour, due to that particular cab and driver. The cab given troubles in between mid way of our journey which we feel bad. I suggest next pilgrims should check communication of cab driver and check condition of cab before starting long journeys. Rest travel agent is very cooperative and flexible. Agent is given good response and cooperation in every need. My family enjoyed with Everest mountains drive by flight round trip. It is worth seeing.
Trip to NepalThe whole trip was fantastic and I would surely recommend Sumit Keyal from Snowyoda to all my friends and family. The hotels, cab & driver and the selection of places to visit was awesome. We had an amazing trip and a memorable experience. 5 stars to Snowyoda.

Trip to NepalOverall a good experience, Sarankot..Himalaya view was the best thing of my Nepal visit
Trip to NepalOur travel was nice with Snowyoda. They were very helpful in whatever I had asked them to arrange during the trip. Good selection of hotels too. Just felt they could have directed us a little in a better way in terms of timings. For e.g. what time Pashupati temple is opened - first time we went it was closed already and the second time also it was closed, we waited for an hour for darshan. They need to prepare the itinerary in such a way so that we just don't touch the location but also view it properly. In the end also it got a little mismanaged as cab was not available and we had to go to airport on regular taxi (Snowyoda informed the hotel) wherein AC cab was promised throughout the trip.
Trip to NepalBest organized tour. Timely guidance by Roshan and always ready to help. When we replanned our tour Janakpur, he did so instantly. Praised. Due to bad weather, we couldn't travel to Muktinath. Rest was fine

Trip to NepalThe hotels were good. However the driver was not aware of the itenary . He did not cover all the places mentioned in the itenary and could not communicate properly and did not know the local routes. But his driving was good.
