Once you reach Raxaul, you need to cross the boader and reach Birgunj. From Birgunj there are plenty of buses which leaves to kathmandu. Morning starting from 6.30 to 12pm. Again you can find night buses starting from 6 pm to 9pm. If you want you can also hire small vehicles for your comfort as your budget. From Simra you can also get plane to Kathmandu.
