If tourists are travelling through Nepal and want to reach Darjeeling - there are several options available in order to reach the same;

€ There are daily flights from Kathmandu (Capital of Nepal) to Bhadrapur (in Nepal) - one can opt for any of the airlines available. Once in Bhadrapur, one can get a taxi to Kakarivitta (India-Nepal border), Rs. 100 per head or Rs. 600 for the whole taxi (in Nepal currency). From Kakarivitta one can get direct taxis to Siliguri and from Siliguri one can avail direct vehicles as mentioned above in "By Air".

€ If coming by bus from Kathmandu - there are two routes to choose from;
1) Kathmandu to Kakarivitta

Kathmandu to Pashupati is the most convenient route because it hardly takes one hour to reach Darjeeling from Pashupati, but foreign tourists are not allowed to traverse these areas - restricted zone. Only Indian Nationals and citizens of Nepal are allowed to move across the borders. Foreign nationals should opt for the first route i.e. Kathmandu to Kakarivitta and follow the directions as given above.
