The distance from Sauraha(Chitwan) to Kathmandu is approximately 165kms. Depending on the road condition it takes about 5-6 hours to complete the journey. It’s a nice scenic drive from the plains towards the hills passing several small settlement along the way, with forest covered hills and small villages. From Sauraha we follow the East West Highway until Narayanghat, from Narayanghat the drive goes along the banks of the Seti Gandaki river on the Prithivi Highway until the confluence and continue along the banks of the Trishuli river and slowly ascend towards Nuabise. From Nuabise it is a gradual climb until Thankot and then descends into the Kathmandu valley.
