By Air: Nepal’s has one international airport – Tribhuvan International Airport which operates a good number of flights for Delhi, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Lucknow, Varanasi, Chennai, and Mumbai from Kathmandu. Indian airlines like Air India and Indigo along with Nepal’s Royal Nepal Airline operate their flights on a regular basis.
By Rail: Nepal can be accessed by train from India as well, partly though but it is a cheaper option than flight to reach. One has to get to Gorakhpur in Uttar Pradesh by train, then has to take a bus or shared jeep to the border in Sunauli, then another bus or shared jeep to Kathmandu from Bhairahawa on the Nepali side of the border.
By Road: Nepal is bordered by India on its three sides, which means there are a number of access point to the country. The most common one being the Sunauli Border which discussed in the section above. However, the most convenient way now available for the tourists is the bus service between New Delhi and Kathmandu. It departs daily at 10 a.m. from Ambedkar Stadium Bus Terminal at Delhi Gate. The bus is a luxury Volvo bus. It goes via Agra, Kanpur, and the Sunauli border in Uttar Pradesh.
Via Banbasa Border: Another way to reach Nepal from India is through Banbasa Border Crossing in Uttarakhand. This picturesque route is the quickest way from Delhi to Kathmandu if you have your own car. You can also stop at Bardia National Park in Nepal, about five hours from the border, on the way to Kathmandu.
Via Varanasi: Buses from Varanasi to Kathmandu are also available.
Via the Raxaul Border Crossing: The Raxaul border crossing to Birganj in central Nepal is accessible from Patna in the India state of Bihar. It’s quite convenient for anyone travelling from Bodh Gaya or Kolkata but from Bodh Gaya, it’s quicker and easy to take a bus or car and travel by road. From the border, buses take 6-7 hours to reach Kathmandu and 8 hours to Pokhara. Shared jeeps to Kathmandu are a quicker option.
Via the Panitanki Border Crossing: The Panitanki border crossing to Kakarbhitta in eastern Nepal, is accessible from Siliguri in West Bengal. It is easily accessible for people traveling from Darjeeling, Kolkata, Sikkim and the rest of northeast India. Buses, taxis and shared jeeps run to the border from Siliguri, Kalimpong, and Gangtok in Sikkim. The border crossing is open 24 hours. There are regular buses to Kathmandu which take 14 to 16 hours and to Pokhara which take 15 hours from Kakarbhitta. One can also choose to stop at Chitwan National Park on the way to break the journey. Get off at Sauraha (9 hours from Kakarbhitta), which is the closest town and travel hub to the park.
Other Border Crossing: Two other border crossing points are from Jamunaha in Uttar Pradesh to Nepalganj in western Nepal, and Gauriphanta in Uttar Pradesh to Dhanghadi in far western Nepal. However, they’re rarely used.
For Indians, Nepal offers visa free entry to the country. At the airport, one can either show an Indian passport or the Indian Voter ID Card along with the boarding pass.
While travelling by road, it is advised to keep the copy and original ready of the Passport/Voter ID Card.
The currency in the country is called Nepalese Rupee and 1 Indian Rupee (INR) equals to 1.60 Nepalese Rupees (NPR). The old notes i.e notes used prior to demonetization in India of the value 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100 are used widely in Nepal. The country does not accept any of the new notes including that of 500 and 2000.

A himalayan panoramic mountain flight tour is the perfect way of enjoying unparalleled eye-level views of those majestic mountain peaks and watch true Himalayan beauty unfold right in front of your eyes, including Mount Everest. Some of the most popular peaks that can be seen through a panoramic flight include Mt. Makalu, Mt. Gosaithan, Mt. Dorje Lhakpa, Mt. Gauri-Shanker, Mt. Pumori and the Grand Daddy of them all – Mount Everest.
One of the best and most challenging biking excursions can be found in Shivapuri National Park. The dirt roads that start off at the Budhanikantha entrance are hardly ever used, and the challenging patches in between simply makes riding all the more exciting. Those searching for easier options can explore the Godavari, Bungamati and Chapagaun roads, known for their serene beauty and easy trails. Another popular mountain biking tour is Kathmandu to Nargakot and back. If you're looking for a real challenge, do the Annapurna Circuit on a mountain bike.
If a panoramic flight around the Himalayas doesn’t sound exciting, a helicopter tour across Mount Everest certainly will. This tour lets you get up close and personal with some of the most traditional Himalayan cultures and admire majestic peaks such as Mt. Cho Oyu, Mt. Ama Dablam and Mt. Pumori at the same time.
