Buddha Air has weekly two flights (i.e. Monday and Friday) from Varanasi, India to Kathmandu, Nepal and vice-versa. The flight duration of Varanasi – Kathmandu is 50 minutes.
Varanasi is the epitome of a holy city. Religious rituals occur daily on the ghats located along the Ganges River. Being the world’s oldest continually inhabited cities, Varanasi is rich in history, where legends of Gods and Goddess unfold. It is an important religious sanctity for Hindus, Buddhists and Jains. Pilgrims believe Varanasi can absolve their sins, and gain liberation upon death. Sarnath and Bodhgaya are other pilgrimage destinations, where one can understand how Buddhism came to be.
Religion and culture coincide and melt with each other in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. The largest metropolitan, it possesses a rich 2000 years old history. Ancient kingdoms used to rule over the many durbar squares around Kathmandu. People here are predominantly Hindus and Buddhists. They perform and celebrate religious activities according to their own ethnicity. This creates a unique and diverse insight into the religious habits and routines of the people.
