Wicked Hostels, small but fun, and definitely get out to Lake Louise, Jasper and Banff. Alberta is a stunning area. Enjoy!

comment Explain travel times and distances on flight
@AdityaSomani indirectly (I didn't want to get into a physics explanation). The spin of the earth (Coriolis) drags the atmosphere with it, and creates prevailing weather patterns making one direction faster (more detailed explanation here)

comment Is it legal for an Indian Citizen to travel to Nepal without any form of identification?
Yes, and your question said " Are there any situations where I do not require a passport?" - the answer is yes, by air. This is why you need to ask multiple questions separately, or clarify what you mean :/
