Delhi to Kathmandu by train + bus.
It's quite easy, cheap, and an adventure to do this journey overland.
Take a bus or jeep from Gorakhpur to the Nepalese frontier at Sunauli (Indian side) and Bhairawa (Nepalese side, often also called Sunauli). Journey time about 3 hours, Rs 55 (£1 or $2).
Walk across the frontier, it's then a few minutes walk to the Bhairawa bus station. Take a bus or jeep on to Kathmandu. Buses take 9 to 12 hours, cost about 120 Nepalese Rupees or 230 Indian Rupees (£1 or $2). There are many buses daily, either daytime buses leaving regularly until about 11:00 or overnight buses leaving regularly. Indian rupees may be accepted here in Bhairawa, but not further into Nepal.
It's also possible to travel via Varanasi. An overnight train links Delhi & Varanasi. Buses link Varanasi with the Nepalese border.
