The Sunauli border is the most popular entry point from India to Nepal, and vice-versa, when traveling overland. If you arrive at the Sunauli border on the Indian side, you’ll have most likely come by bus from Varanasi or Gorakhpur (the closest main train station, about two hours away).

The buses drop passengers in a parking lot a few hundred meters from the border. You can walk, but if you don’t want to, negotiate a cycle rickshaw to take you across. Ignore anyone trying to sell bus tickets, it’s much better to get them on the Nepal side.

Sunauli is the traditional name given to both sides of this India/Nepal border crossing, 70 kilometers north of Gorakpur and 3 kilometers south of Bhairahawa. Technically the Indian side is “Sunauli” and Nepal side is Belahiya.

For foreigners, first stop is the Indian immigration office to get a departure stamp in your passport. You’ll find it on your right hand side before the border. Second stop is the Nepal Immigration Office at Belahia, Bhairahawa, on the other side of the border.

It’s again on your right hand side, a short distance after crossing. Nepali visas on arrival are issued there (see tips below for more information).

Lastly, you’ll want to organize onward travel. Pokhara and Kathmandu are roughly the same distance away, about eight hours or more. However, Kathmandu Car Services will approach you with offers of transport before that. We can’t provide self-driving Kathmandu to Sunauli car rental services
