A few days ago, India and Nepal launched the first ever scheduled bus service between the two countries. For now, there will be daily buses between Delhi and Kathmandu. Later on, Delhi – Pokhara and Varanasi – Kathmandu routes will be added. This will make traveling by land between the two countries much easier, though every story I’ve heard about just going to the border by road has been a nightmare. Previously, there was no direct bus service.
