Take a train from Kolkata to Siliguiri and from there take a bus to Panitanki on the Indian side of the border with Nepal.

You can take direct train from Howrah to Raxual (Mithila Express) which is overnight train. Raxaul is indian side of border from where Birgunj the nepali side, is about 2 or 3 kms from Birgunj you can get many buses to Kathmandu that reach in 5-6hrs (if that is your destination)

Thank you
