I am planning for a one month journey to Kathmandu, Nepal. I have read that Indian citizen does not need to have visa as to travel to Nepal. If so what all identifications/documents should I carry with me. And what all are the procedures?

Indian nationals do not require visas to travel to Nepal. According to Wikipedia, "Indian citizens may live and work freely in Nepal under the terms of the 1950 Indo-Nepal Treaty of Peace and Friendship."

However you are required to provide a valid government photo id card while entering Nepal. Voter's Id Card, Passport, Aadhar card, Driving licence etc are accepted.
