You can go to Vanarasi from kathmandu either by Bus or By plane. You can get the flight to Vanarasi very easily. If you prefer to the Bus , Drive to sunauli from Kathmandu and next day after entering to the Indian Boarder, You can get a Air conditioned bus to VAnarasi which departs every day at 7. 30 AM and their charge is around 230 India currency. I used this service in the end of the last december ( Just 3 week ago) and it was great .

You asked this question before and I gave you almost the same answer as the last post.

Hi Wouter,
You gave me a lot information about India but not the information how to travel from Nepal to Varanasi.
I was very glad to get mail from you because you told me a lot about India. Good information!
But maybe I forgot the information you told me about Nepal to Varanasi?? Or I didn't get it.
But if you know something more about it, I appreciate it when you tell me!
thanks anyway

Hola!

And... two more questions:

a) what is the regular price for the flight Varanasi-Kathmandu? (for the bus it was around 300 rupees, right?)

b) how long it takes the bus to arrive? (V-K)

Do you think the flight is worth it or the bus is ok?

In the end... three questions...

Graciiiiias!! :)

A flight is about 90 to 100 euro. The bustrip took me 22 hours. I think it can be shorter since I had to spend 4 hours in the bordertown of Sunauli. The bustrip is one of the heaviest I had. You need a good stomic also. From the border its better because its flat. Its up to you. Do you go for expensive and comfortable. Or will you do it cheap and adventerous;).

A busticket Varanasi-Kathmandu should cost 500 to 600 rupees....
You need to change over in Sunauli...

Thanks wouter! ;)

Anyway... at the Nepal border (by bus) I think it's possible to get the visa, right??

Besides being that heavy, the sights from the bus are worth it?

Gracias! ;)
