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.
