By Air

Nepal's Tribhuvan International Airport is the main entry point for those arriving by air and is located just outside of the ring road in Kathmandu. The airport serves as the hub for Nepal Airlines, which flies from various destinations in India, as well as Bangkok, Doha, Dubai, Hong Kong, and Kuala Lumpur.

By Rail

There is no easy access to Nepal by train. Internal train network is limited to a few kilometers of train network in Janakpur.

By Bus

The Sunauli-Bhairawa border crossing is the closest to Varanasi, the Raxaul-Birganj crossing to Patna and Kolkata, and Siliguri- Kakarbhitta to Darjeeling. The Banbassa-Mahendrenagar border crossing, in the extreme west of Nepal, is the closest to Delhi. The Bahraich-Nepalganj border is the one closest to Lucknow, the easiest destination by air or train from Delhi. 

There are now many airlines offering frequent domestic flights to major cities in Nepal, which indeed is the most convenient way to travel around Nepal. They have domestic airports in different parts of Nepal, namely Bhadrapur, Janakpur, Khandbari, Bhojpur, Pokhara, Bharatpur, Jomsom, Itahari Bishnupur, Gadhimai,Tikapur, and Siddhicharan. You can also travel by the local bus. However, it can be a bit confusing, but they are affordable. The bus can be crowded at times. Rickshaw/tempo is good for short jaunts if you don't have much luggage and don't mind being bounced around a bit. There are two types of taxis: "private," which pretty much run from the airport to your hotel and “shared taxis,” which don't leave until they are full.

travel tips
TIP
1

Keep a calculator or your phone handy! 10 NPR is 6.26 INR that is rounded up to 6 INR. Keeping a calculator handy will help you calculate the amount you need to spend or receive in Nepal.

TIP
2

It is better to carry a good universal adapter as an alternative with you during your travels to lower the risk of not finding the right kind of plug.  

TIP
3

Rural places do not accept cards and other currencies as you get inside the country. Better carry cash at all times since you may not find ATMs everywhere. INR can be used on the border areas but they don’t accept INR 500 and INR 2000.

TIP
4

Never go for trekking or mountaineering solo. If you are a solo traveler, find some trekkers in Nepal, online, or ask help from your travel guide. There have been many unexplained disappearances of solo trekkers.
