I want to tell you something about Nepal. All the Indian citizens doesn't require a Visa. You have to be very careful if you are coming to Nepal. You have to bring the currency below 100 INR. That is 100, 50, 20. I have received the Nepal currency. This is Nepali Rashtra Bank. Shashi has come here to pick me up. She is the marketing manager at Soaltee hotel.
You are very beautiful. -Thank you so much. Thank you so much. Happy Holi to you also. Is this Nepal tradition? -Yes. Nepali people are very calm and cool.
Many Nepalese are living in India. Many of you ask me this question. If we are going out of India for the first time, which country should we go to? It should be very easy and it should not be very expensive. There is a very beautiful country next to India, Nepal. Where people are very friendly and soft-hearted just like the country. 1 Jyotirling is also there in Nepal.
Sita Mata's birthplace Janakpuri is also there in Nepal. Mahatma Budh's birth place Lumbini is also there in Nepal. In the world's 10 tallest mountains, eight Mountains are there in Nepal. Mount Everest which is the tallest Mountain in world, is also there in Nepal.
For hiking and trekking this place is heaven. Wait for a minute, Not only this. The nightlife and the casinos are nowhere less compared to any other country. Greetings! I am Manoj Malhotra, today we are going to our very beautiful neighbouring country, Nepal.
Some of the Africa videos are still left, I am going to upload that after the Nepal series. Nepal people. Won't you welcome me? I have read a lot of comments.
People tell it doesn't feel like we are watching your video. When we are watching your videos, it feels like we are travelling with you. It is because I always start the video from our state and country. We will reach out to other countries giving all the information. Now, we are going to start our journey from my home state, Delhi.
We are going to start from Indira Gandhi Airport terminal 3. We are going to take the Indigo flight. It will depart at 7:40 a.m. We will reach Kathmandu, Nepal within 2 hours. It is the capital city of Nepal and also the biggest city in Nepal.
Check-in and immigration is over. Now, I am going towards my boarding Gate. As you might know, at the check-in Indians don't require a passport to visit the country. If you don't have a passport, only a voter ID is valid. A driving licence, Aadhar card or pan card is not valid to go to Nepal. They did not ask any questions at the immigration counter. At the check-in counter, they asked my covid certificate and my Id card.
Only a voter ID card and passport are valid to go to Nepal. The distance between Delhi and Kathmandu airport by air is 800 km. 1200 km by road.
There is no direct train to Kathmandu from Delhi. You will get buses to Nepal from. Ambedkar Stadium, Majnu Ka Tilla And Sarojini Nagar. It will go to Kathmandu from the Saloni border. You will reach Kathmandu within 14 hours. The bus fare will be more than 3000 INR. 15 to 20 buses go to Nepal daily from Delhi.
These buses are there from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you want to come by train, you will get a train only to Gorakhpur. You have to take a bus to the Saloni border. After reaching Nepal, you have to take another bus to reach Kathmandu. It is not a convenient option. If you want to go to Nepal by car or bike Indian registered vehicles get entry to Nepal for 1 month.
You have to pay 500 INR for customs duties. If you want to stay for more than the specified time, you have to inform the Nepal customs. Otherwise, you would have to pay a large amount of fine. Your vehicle might get seized. If you want to go to any area which is near the border for one day, you will get a day pass for a vehicle.
It is valid. You have to come back on the same day. You have to have to return the pass to the Nepal Customs Officer. Excluding the Uttar Pradesh Saloni border, you can go to Nepal from Uttarakhand, West Bengal, Sikkim and Bihar by road. We boarded the flight. The time is 7:56 a.m. It was announced that we will reach Kathmandu within 1 hour 20 minutes.
Let's see what is the time taken. This is Indigo Air Bus 320. I had come to Nepal in 2009. At the time, the condition of Nepal was very bad. Electricity was not there in Nepal for 7 hours.
Now, as I can see there are solar panels on all the building terraces. The time is 9:40 a.m. The flight has landed. At Tribhuvan International Airport.
Tribhuvan Bir Bikram Shah Dev. The airport is named after an ancient king. The flight landing was informed at 9:00 a.m. Landing permission was not given, The flight was in the air for 30 minutes.
The flight has landed, Now, we will go out of the aircraft. No one asked for water in this 1 hour 30 minutes flight. No one asked about food and water. This flight cost me 12,800 INR. You get flights to Nepal within 6,000 one-way. I had to pay 12,800 because today is the 6th of March 2023.
Nepal celebrates Holi on 6th March. Tribhuvan Bir Bikram Shah Dev was the king of Nepal from 1911 to 1950 There was a monarchy in Nepal from 1768 to 2008. In these 240 years of monarchy, from 1996 to 2006 there was a civil war in Nepal. Monarchy was ended in Nepal. Gyanendra Shah was the king of Nepal till 2008. After entering the airport they checked my covid vaccination certificate.
You have to keep your covid vaccination certificate. Try to get a printout. It would be very difficult to show up on the phone. We have crossed the Nepal immigration.
Nepal visa is free for Indians. Nepal doesn't have any restrictions on Indian staying in Nepal. You can stay in Nepal till your last breath. There is nothing to pay for it.
I would like to thank Nepal Government and Nepal people. Custom checking is going on. They are searching all The Peoples bag which is coming from India. They talked with me very politely.
Everybody has their own identity. They asked me, 'From where did you come?' I told, 'Delhi' He told me to go. Checking is going on. I don't know why they are doing. People might bring some items from Delhi. His name is Aakash, he was my co-passenger. He told me a lot of things. He told me to take Ncell Sim.

Thank you so much, sir. Keep it here. This was the journey from Delhi to Kathmandu. You have to keep these two things in your mind. Nothing will work other than a passport and voter ID. If you think driving licence, PAN card and Aadhar card will work in Nepal, that's not right. Only voter ID and passport are valid to come to Nepal.
You should bring a currency which is below a hundred. Don't bring 200, 500 and 2000. Some people will take it in the market, but they don't accept it easily. They will tear you your money or give it less value.
You should bring notes of 100, 50 and 20. Now, we will go to the event. Till then I will take a leave. We will meet in the next video with Nepal Holi.
Till then take care of yourself. Namaste Shukriya, Jai Hind.
