Now that KTM is pricing train tickets using their Flexi Fare system, prices for tickets vary due to multiple factors as well as the difference in price between the more expensive Platinum trains and cheaper Gold trains.
When you book - It is now cheaper to book far in advance and more expensive if you leave it until just a few days before.
When you are travelling - there are many different "Peak" and "Off-Peak" times of the day, days of the week and periods during the year.

As seating is limited, it is always the best advice to book your tickets as far in advance as you can as trains can often be full during busy times of the year and even at weekends.
