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.

      We enjoyed our small trip to Kathmandu and Nagarkot. Bhagwat made good arrangements for the trip. His drivers are good and professional. Bhagwat also arranged for our Everest flight at the last moment. We loved the location of Katmandu Arts hotel. It is right in the midst of the market area.

      The experience of our visit to kathmandu and pokhara was really good. The only issue was the hotel room during our stay in Kathmandu was too small. Overall the trip was awesome.

      It was an excellent and the most memorable trip ever for us. We travel to various countries every year for vacation. This time we have chosen Nepal (based on our current budget). We traveled to Kathmandu, Pokhara, and Chitwan. Kathmandu was so good. Hotel Mahadev people were a bit lethargic fellows. Laughing on us all the times (I don't know why...!). Next, in Pokhara the hotel where we stayed was Splendid View. V Nice hotel. Hospitality from the crew is awesome. Particularly, Abhilash and Eeswar were very nice people in the hotel. Finally, we stayed in Hotel Royal Safari, where we felt a bit disappointed. This is due to the reasons that the ambiance is not so good (Many people were drinking liquor, smoking around us). We were a bit terrified due to the situation as ours was a family trip (3 Couples and 2 Kids). Also, in the hotel royal safari AC was not properly working and furthermore bedsheets were not clean. The hotel wala charged us 12,500 NPR for Kumrose Jeep Safari (hyderabad zoo will be far better than that), which was not so exciting as we thought. Overall, the first two hotels were so good. Therefore, it was a great trip. Really, the agent Kunal ji was so polite. We were a team of Eight (08) and have different opinions for everybody as far as the trip is concerned. Every time, Kunal was changing the itineraries without any irritation. That was really awesome feeling what I felt. We got some other quotes from different agents, even from some Nepali Agents. But, I have chosen Trip Master only because of Kunal ji. Really, he kept the trust that we kept on him throughout the trip. Special Thanks to Kunal Ji and especially Me along with my wife decided to go with Travel Triangle (if possible Kunal ji again) in our future trips. New people may feel scared a bit to go with this agency. But, I assure you to please go ahead for experiencing budget friendly and awesome trips. Further, we should thank Raushan Kumar Ji for his timely approach and concern on us. He was calling us regularly to verify our satisfaction. Really Thanking him from our side for his tremendous support. Finally, we would like to Thank an excellent driver of the era Binda Ji for bearing us till the end :). He was an excellent and the most experienced driver. The best part of him is his smile that he carried always throughout the trip. Thank you Binda Ji. Definitely, your trip will be memorable and go ahead without any hesitation. It is the best travel agency. I will definitely go with this agency for the next time undoubtedly. - Dr. Raghu Chandra Garimella

      We had booked nepal trip for 7N - 8D package through traveltriangle ( snowyoda agent). The hotels given were very good with good staff and services. Overall experience was decent The main points of concern 1. Horrible car service provided. Car was in good condition but faced lot of trouble with driver. He was not answering anything we asked, was rough driver and didnot bother much about taking care of passangers needs. He also didnot take us to some of the mentioned itiniary places 2. It was already informed that we prefer jain meal. Some hotels, we had to really face lot of troubles getting jain meal 3. Support from snowyoda representative was good but we didnot get much satisfactory solution to the driver issue. 1. Nagarkot was good location. We had a beautiful view from our room and had good time on our wedding anniversary there 2. Hotel staff at kathmandu hotel was very caring and helpful. Helped us wilth all our needs

      Brilliant trip! I'd suggest you stay at Pokhara for longer than Kathmandu. Great natural beauty and the Himalayas make everything worthwhile. The hotels were wonderful for our budget and the drive to various places was memorable.
