Birgunj is a city in Parsa district, Nepal.


The city is located on the borders with the Indian state of Bihar, and is a major point of entry for goods coming from India and also the port of Kolkata.

Get in

There is some airlines flying to a place called Simara from where it takes around 45 minutes to reach Birgunj. If you have hotels booked then there is possibility of pick up from the airport to the hotel or you can hire some cabs. If you want to travel by land then there are several buses leaving from Kathmandu and some are really good services. There are also night buses leaving from kathmandu to birgunj and these are the best buses running in Nepal.

Travel by Tata Sumo (jeep) from Birgunj to Kathmandu takes 5-6 hours and is a bumpy ride at best--perhaps not for the faint of heart. The ride should cost INR250-350.

Get around






An abundance of mosquitoes in April, together with heat of 40C, made sleep almost impossible in early April.

Get out
