As one wants to know how to reach Kathmandu from Delhi, then it can be concluded that the best mode of transport is via flight. There are plenty of flights, such as Royal Nepal Airways, Air India, and IndiGo that provide their services to help one cover the aerial distance of about 800 kms in about one and a half hours. As the ticket price for a Delhi to Kathmandu is around INR 5,000, you can either opt for this route, or board a flight from Varanasi, which can have a little lower price. The secondary option can be roadways, or a combination of road and rail routes. Though, you cannot find a direct train to Kathmandu, there are a few trains that you can board to Gorakhpur, followed by two bus journeys to Sunauli and then Kathmandu. However, as the journey can be quite tiresome, it is advised to travel there via bus, which is again the cheapest modes of transportation to reach Kathmandu from Delhi. You can also choose to travel between the two places via car, either through Sunauli or Banbasa in Uttarakhand. The latter one is quite picturesque and the quickest route to reach the destination.
Here is our detailed guide in regard to the best way to travel from Delhi to Kathmandu via different transport systems.
Delhi to Kathmandu by Flight: Tribhuvan International Airport, 5 km away from the main city is the one that connects Kathmandu with India and the rest of the world. All the Delhi to Kathmandu flight routes are direct, without any stop or layover. There are more than seven flights every day of the week. Jet Airways and Air India have the most number of flights. Delhi to Kathmandu flight distance is around 800 kilometers, which is easily traveled in less than 2 hours.
Delhi to Kathmandu by Train: Here’s the most economical way to travel between the two places. Though, there is no direct rail connectivity between the two regions, the most viable option to travel from Delhi to Kathmandu by train is via Gorakhpur. You can board a train from Delhi to Gorakhpur, and then get on a bus journey from there to Sunauli followed by another bus journey to Kathmandu. The total journey may take around 11 to 13 hours, while the fare may range between INR 550 and INR 3,500, depending on the bus or train services that you avail.
Delhi to Kathmandu by Road: There are four border crossings for the tourists who travel from India via roadways. You can travel to Kathmandu from Delhi via bus or car.
By Bus: There is a direct bus that departs daily at 10 AM from Delhi to Kathmandu. While navigating its way via Agra and Sunali, the journey takes about 30 hours with some regular stops for toilet and dining purposes. The bus journey may cost you somewhere about INR 2,500.
By Car: Sunauli border crossing near Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh is the one used the most to go from Delhi to Kathmandu by car. The total distance to be covered till Kathmandu is around 1310 km, and it takes 20 hours at least to go via road.

Trip to kathmanduHotel at Kathmandu not upto mark rooms small and smelly.,as per agent it's supposed to be 3 star, but we didt felt so. Nagarkot arrival entry fee not being informed before hand. We had wonderful tour, with Himalayas mountain view, Para gliding n elephant bath. Our kids enjoyed.
Trip to kathmanduIt was a nice & enjoying experience. Services provided by snoyoda was prompt and responsive. They were very courteous too. Thanks for all Darshan of Pashupati nathji at Kathmandu. We had the opportunity to have the Darshan twice.
Trip to kathmanduWe 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.
Trip to kathmanduThe 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.
Trip to kathmanduIt 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
Trip to kathmanduWe 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
Trip to kathmanduBrilliant 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.
Trip to kathmanduKathmandu drivers kept on changing and car was small and last day it was so hot and a/c was not working
Trip to kathmanduIt was such an amazing experience. Our driver Pravin was very kind, helpful and keep us safe during the tour. The staff of our hotels was so kind, welcoming, cheerful and respectful. Vikram, Suyog, and the rest of the team in Hotel Temple Inn in Kathmandu were so helpful, full of energy. Bravo to them
