The Currency Of Nepal

The official currency used in Nepal is the Nepalese rupee (NPR). The currency notes most beneficial for you during your stay in Nepal are Rs. 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, and 1000. You can also find coins worth NPR 1 and 2. It is handy to keep some of these coins as well. The Indian Rupee (INR) is also accepted in some places in Nepal. Buy not bills of 500 and 2000.

Nevertheless, we still recommend getting Nepalese currency for ease of use. The exchange rates of foreign currency fluctuate daily according to the market. However, the Nepalese Rupee (NPR) exchange rate to the Indian Rupee (INR) is constant. We suggest you bring your currency or US$ or Euro with you. According to the Nepal Rastra Bank exchange rate, it is straightforward to exchange money in Nepal. Of course, the Exchange rate is increasing and decreasing often.
