Currency in Nepal

The official currency in Nepal is the Nepalese Rupee. If you are on a Nepal holiday, you can carry Indian Rupees in the denomination of Rs 100 and can get the same exchanged at the airport through an authorised agency. Nepalese Rupee comes in the denomination of 20, 25, 50, 100, 500 and 1000 rupee notes and 1, 2, 5 and 10 coins.

Before you get your currency exchanged, it is always best to check the exchange rate. Indian Rupee has a fixed exchange rate, so it is best to get the same confirmed.

If you plan to use the ATMs, it is necessary to check if the same will accept your credit or debit card for withdrawal. You can use your cards in the major town or cities. However, you will need to pay by cash at smaller shops and locations.
