Welcome to Siddharthanagar (Bhairawa) & Sunauli


Typical of many border towns, it is dusty and chaotic. Most people just get their passports stamped and continue on their way. If you do need to spend a night here there are hotels along the unattractive strip, but it makes more sense to stay in the more relaxed town of Siddharthanagar, also known as Bhairawa, 4km north.

Buses run directly from the border to most major towns in Nepal, so unless you plan to stay overnight or are heading to Lumbini, there’s no real need to go into Siddharthanagar (Bhairawa), which has no sights of interest.
