Travel to Kathmandu

Being the capital of Nepal and well-connected to major cities of other countries, Kathmandu serves easy access to figure out how to go to Kathmandu from India. There are various airlines that operate direct flights from Indian cities, including Kolkata, Mumbai, Delhi, Jaipur, Bangalore, and Varanasi. Hence, one can choose to board a flight to cover the India to Kathmandu distance of around 1010 kms in less than one and a half hours of duration.

However, a bus can also be taken to enjoy a ride to Kathmandu from Patna and Gorakhpur. Upon arrival, choose to get on Tribhuvan Highway towards the south, Prithvi Highway to the west and Araniko Highway to the north as they are the main arteries of long-route commute connecting the capital city with the rest of the country.

Visa Application Information

As per the Treaty of Peace and Friendship signed between Nepal and India in 1950, there is no requirement of visa for Indians travelling to Nepal. Visitors from India are allowed to move across the borders without any passport or visa requirements. All they need is a valid identification card from their country to prove themselves as citizens of India.

Here’s how to reach Kathmandu from India via different modes of transport in brief detail.


By Air

The best way to reach Kathmandu is via boarding a flight from India. Tribhuvan International Airport of Kathmandu, located only 6 km away from the city is the busiest and most popular one in the country. It is well-connected with multiple Indian cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Lucknow, Pune, Bangalore and more, and covers the distance of 800 kms in around 1 hour and 30 minutes. The international terminal connects Kathmandu and consequently Nepal with around 30 cities in Europe and Asia. The best India to Kathmandu flights are mostly operated by Air India and Jet Airways.


By Train

To go from India to Kathmandu via train, one must go through the Delhi-UP route. The nearest railway station to Kathmandu is Gorakhpur in UP which can be easily reached from Delhi. There is no India to Kathmandu Nepal train that reaches the city directly, but this is as close as it gets. There was one between Janakpur in Nepal and Jainagar in India, but the line at present is redundant. From Gorakhpur, the rest of the commute has to be made via road. There are local buses or jeeps to take passengers to the border at Sunauli in 3 hours, and then across the border from Bhairawa, there are overnight buses to Kathmandu.


By Road

There are several roadway connections between India and Kathmandu, and they are quite extensively used by residents of both countries. The Sunaili border crossing, accessible from Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh is the busiest India-Nepal border. Raxaul crossing near Patna in Bihar is also frequently used, although the town itself is not a very eventful one. There are direct bus services from Delhi, Varanasi or Raxaul to Kathmandu as well, which take from 7-10 hours to reach Kathmandu depending on the starting location. For people living in the east – West Bengal, Sikkim and north-eastern states of India, the Panitanki border is the best option. There are Kathmandu bus services, jeeps and hired cars from Siliguri in WB and Gangtok in Sikkim. The journey takes around 14-16 hours.

    • Trip to Nepal

      trip was good. the trip was good.all the arrangements were fine. but I think the chitwan hotel Royal Safari was way too expensive. I could have better options at their in that price also they charged too much for cultural program.

    • Trip to Nepal

      Travel agent charged us extra for the place which he included in itinerary and we couldn't even go to the places which he included. As a travel agent he should know better time and places before including them in itinerary. And few places are not even worth going. He should not include such places. We as customers don't know that's why we contact travel agents and if they also don't give proper planning and information then it's not fair. Best memory is patan darbar square and Everest flight which we did on our selves and was not included in itinerary.

      It was a very pleasant and satisfying holiday. From quote to planning to fares to insurance to payment, the trip itself and till the end of it, was all very smooth. The moment we chose the vendor, 'SnowYoda Expeditions'(through travel triangle), I think things started to get very very easy. SnowYoda, especially Sumit displayed fantastic professionalism and made sure we got a very good deal. He was around for every question and concern we posted, including the air ticket booking which we got cheaper than the market despite a huge demand (due to Jet Airways cancellations). And to make things simpler during the trip on a couple of uncontrollable situations due to festivities and transit delay, he made sure to talk to the hotel staff and even extended their dinner time just for our situation. I would highly rate Snowyoda+Staff/driver and would recommend them to any travelers looking forward to Nepal through Travel Triangle. SnowYoda is your choice when planning a trip to the Snow capped region ;-) And TT advisor Shreya for coordinating payments and other formalities well, thank you. Nagarkot, Sarangkot and Manakamana Temple is a must if one visits Nepal.

      Trip was OK all through. However, on last day, there was confusion about places to go. Inspite of fact that we had asked the agents for all known and important places, we were not taken to Swayambhunath temple and Darbar square mentioning that it was not covered in the itinerary.
