Aaron,

There are lots of options for traveling from India to Nepal. Here are a few:

- Fly from Delhi to Kathmandu, ~200 - 300 USD for a return trip.
- Take a train from Delhi to Gorakhpur and then take a bus / shared conveyance / Cab to the Nepal border.
- Take a train from Delhi to Gonda and cross into Nepal from the Barhni border by Bus / Cab.

You can book the train tickets at irctc.co.in (requires registration)

Hope this helps.

Happy Traveling,
Apurva

Besides flying from Delhi to Kathmandu as 'kid' mentioned, there are plenty of overland options into Nepal. It depends on where u want to enter and exit Nepal.

If u enter Nepal through the western part (Tanakpur crossing), then u might want to leave Nepal via the central part(through Gorakhpur town(India)) or the eastern part(near Siliguri). If u have not visited Darjeeling or Gangtok, then u may use the Eastern border for exit.

The entry/exit through Gorakhpur is quite convenient as the city is linked to almost all parts of India by express trains

Also from Varanasi there's a bus to Kathmandu, with a night's stop on the border at Belahiya on the Nepali side... And its cheap! I think this was like 15 USD (cheap dorm room included), if memory serves me right... And it was a great ride, especially from the border winding up the hills into Nepal... one of my favourite bus journeys, just feeling the countries change, the whole atmosphere, from India into Nepal...
