In order to fly directly to Nepal from your home country, Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu is the only international airport in Nepal. Thai Airways, Gulf Air, Qatar, Indian Airlines, Jet Airways, Korean Air, Etihad Air, Silk Air, Air Arabia, Druk Air, Jet lite, Dragon Air, Air China and Cathay Pacific carry most of the foreign travelers to Kathmandu. If you buy tickets from any other airlines, you will probably connect with one of these airlines for the final leg of your flight. Alternatively, if you have valid visa, you can also travel to Nepal via India and Tibet (China).
You can fly between Delhi and Kathmandu, there are many flights available in this sector. There are a number of overland entry points for travel by road and you could come by train to Ghorakpur, travelling the rest of the way by road.
Please note that Delhi-Kathmandu-Delhi flight is very busy and without proper reservations in advance it might be difficult to get seats.
Alternatively, you can travel overland to Nepal from India by bus. There are three main entry points: Sunauli-Bhairahawa, Birgung-Raxual and Kakarvitta. The Sunauli border crossing is the best option to make your entry into Nepal from Varanasi; the Birgunj crossing is the easiest from Calcutta and Kakarvitta is the best crossing point from Darjeeling and Sikkim. These overland trips from India can be quite long and stressful and are not recommended for those people who want to have stress-free travelling.
