Now Aadhaar is a valid travelling document to visit Nepal and Bhutan

All the people of India who are covered in these age groups(under 15 and over 65) are able to use Aadhaar as a travelling document.

Actually, Aadhaar is a unique identification number issued by the UIDAI (Unique Identification Authority of India ). This is a 12 digit number and is being compulsory for using any government services in India.
The official also said that the certificate of registration issued by the Embassy of India, Kathmandu, to the Indian citizens is not a valid travelling document to travel between India and Nepal.
But an emergency certificate with an identity certificate that issued by the Indian Embassy in Nepal will valid a single journey of coming back to India.

One more option for teens between 15 and 18. They can travel between India and Nepal with the help of an identity certificate that is issued by the Headteacher or principal of their school. This certificate must be in the prescribed form.
