Gorakhpur is a major district of Uttar Pradesh that is near to Bhairahwa / Sonauli Border of Nepal which is approx 100 Kms from Gorakhpur (UP). Gorakhpur is very well connected to other parts of India by rail, road, and air, so the Sonauli border is most convenient for people from the northern, southern, and western parts of India to enter Nepal.

Kathmandu is the capital city of Nepal & its Tribhuwan International Airport serves as an international connection point to the rest of the world with Nepal. If you are planning to reach Nepal directly & want to visit only Kathmandu valley because of limited time then this is one of the best options. Otherwise, it is better to enter Nepal by road at any point in time as this option gives you the benefit of savings on international flights, and also gives you the chance of visiting Indian holy places like Ayodhya, Kashi, Naimisaranayam, Sitamarhi & Gaya along with your Nepal tour.

Indira Gandhi International Airport New Delhi is the prominent choice of people who stays in North India OR want to enter Nepal by air route. The official airline of Nepal (Nepal Air) during peak tourist season operates two flight between Kathmandu & New Delhi, whereas many Indian airline companies like IndiGo, Vistara & Spice Jet has their service on this route. But again, as mentioned above this option is suitable only for those who have limited plans or limited time. Know more here about how to plan Nepal tour packages from Delhi.
Natives of West Bengal, and neighboring states near Kolkata city, prefer to plan their Nepal tour packages from Kolkata. But basically, this is only a route through which you can plan your trip, actually, you need to start your tour either from Birganj OR the Sonauli border, also if someone wants to fly directly to Kathmandu that option can also be taken. The most frequently used border in this option is Birganj because Raxaul railway station is connected by a direct train from Kolkata, but the Sonauli border is better because Gorakhpur is connected to Kolkata by multiple train options & a direct flight from Kolkata which operates daily once a day. Above that, if you travel via Gorakhpur you can add Gorakhnath Math (Yogi Adityanath) & Lumbini (Birth Place of Lord Buddha) to your itinerary without increasing any day hence no increase in the total tour cost. So, the key takeaway is, if you planning Nepal Tour Packages from Kolkata then enter Nepal Via Sonauli & exit via Birganj. Know more here about how to plan Nepal tour packages from Kolkata.

If you are a resident of Southern India, Western India & Northern India then Sonauli Border is the best choice for you to enter Nepal. If you want to know why the Sonauli border is most suitable for you OR if you are a resident of other parts of India & want to know which border will be suitable for you?, then please check out our following video on YouTube.
Yes, you can go to Nepal in your own car. But the following documents are required.
If you have all the above documents, then you can go to Nepal in your own car.
If you are an Indian citizen then you don’t need VISA to enter Nepal either by Air OR by Road. But if you are a PIO card holder (Person of Indian Origin) then you must get VISA before entering Nepal in any which way.
For any Indian citizen, voter’s ID card & passport are the only documents that prove your nationality as Indian, the rest of other documents like an ADHAR card, PAN Card, or any other such cards is considered as your proof of identity.
So, as the rule says Indian citizens don’t require VISA, so you have to prove that you are an Indian & for this you must carry either voter’s ID Card OR a passport (both in original, xerox copy not accepted).
However, kids of age below 12 years & elders above 65 years are exempted from this rule; they can travel on ADHAR Card provided they are traveling in a group with people who have either voter’s ID cards OR passports. This means if someone travels to Nepal with their kids & parents & these people do not have voter’s ID card OR passport they can enter Nepal on an ADHAR card provided the master passengers have voter’s ID OR passport.
But, we strongly recommend that before booking your flight ticket to Nepal you must re-confirm this with your airline to avoid any last-minute confusion & avoid loss of money.
Passengers are also required to carry a printed copy of the online form (International Traveler Online Arrival Form) to be filled by logging in to https://ccmc.gov.np/
If you are fully vaccinated then you do not require to carry RT-PCR test report, provided you have completed your last dose before 14 days of your entry to Nepal.
But if you are partially vaccinated or not vaccinated then you have to carry an RT-PCR test report & test must not be done 72 hrs before your entry time to Nepal, i.e if you are entering Nepal on 04 July at 11 AM, then your report must not be older than 01 July 11.01 AM.
Yes, Indian Currency notes (IC) of denomination Rs 100 & lesser (both new & old) are widely accepted in Nepal. Indian currency notes of Rs 2000 & Rs 500 are not acceptable within Nepal, but these currency notes can be tendered at money exchange counters to buy Nepali currency. (Conversion Rate: 1 Indian Rupee (IC) = 1.60 Nepali Rupee (NC)).
Yes, debit cards & credit cards issued in India (VISA, Master, Maestro) are accepted at mostly POS (Point of sale) and almost every ATM. But, it is mentioned on the back side of some of these cards “Not for use in Nepal & Bhutan”, so all such cards are not valid for transactions in Nepal.
As a proud Indian, now you can also use a RuPay Debit card in Nepal, as Nepal has become the 4th country after Singapore, UAE & Bhutan to accept the use of RuPay cards.
But we recommend you to use debit OR credit only in case of emergency, as your bank in India will charge you for every transaction in Nepal & charges varies from bank to bank & type of cards. So, before traveling check with your bank regarding international charges.
No, none of these online payment transfer platforms work in Nepal. They cannot be used for making payments in Nepal, because these are linked with your Indian Banks & when you are in Nepal all your transactions would be International transfers & these platforms do not support international payments.
Nepal also has similar kinds of platforms, & one of those is FonePay. So please do not get confused with Indian PhonePay, these two are different platforms.
However, Gateway Payment Service, a payment system operator licensed by Nepal Rastra Bank is working on a plan where Indians can use Google Pay & PayTM to pay in Nepal & Nepalis can use their e-Sewa & Khalti to make payments in India.
You can get your Indian Rupee exchanged for Nepali Rupee at local banks in Nepal for the best currency exchange value. Another place where you can get the best value is at currency exchange counters within the city or at the Indo-Nepal borders (in case you are entering by road). Airports are the worst place for currency exchange as you will never get the best value for your money, hence we never recommended it.
Yes Indian SIM works in Nepal if before travel you have activated international roaming on your number from your service provider. You can make use of your Indian number to make & receive calls from Nepal. Calling charges & data depends on the type of pack provided by your mobile operator, so check it before activating.
We recommend you buy a local Nepali SIM (which costs around INR 200) when you are in Nepal & use this Nepali number to make calls out of Nepal, because in some cases even after activating your international roaming, calling charges may be very high, whereas calling from Nepal to India using Nepali SIM is as low as INR2.50/minute (charges may vary from operator to operator).
Yes, you can use your Indian WhatsApp number for making & receiving calls in Nepal. You only have to connect your phone with a wi-fi network (available in hotels & airports) OR use your phone data for the same.
You can also use Facebook messenger to make & receive calls in Nepal.
