Nomadic Nepal

Nepal is a trekkers paradise. The country is a sensory overload, embellished with golden temples, rugged trails, mesmerizing wildlife and quaint villages. The best bit? All you need is a sense of adventure and some Nepalese Rupee to experience Nepal in all its glory. 
 
If you’re seeking the opportunity to immerse yourself in some of nature's most breathtaking creations, or simply like an excess of colourful prayer flags, Nepal is the place for you. Boasting the Himalayas, Everest base camp and Chitwan National Park, it’s no wonder the capital, Kathmandu, is the inspiration behind one of the worlds biggest outdoor apparel companies (you’ll probably need one of their puffer jackets over there too).

Coins and Notes

Just like India, one rupee is divided into 100 paise. When it comes to shrapnel, you can get both Paise (1, 5, 10, 25 and 50) and Rupee (Re.1, Rs. 2, Rs. 5, Rs. 10) coins. Notes, however, only come as rupees in the form of Rs. 5, Rs. 10, Rs. 20, Rs. 50, Rs. 100, Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000. 
 
You might find it difficult getting change for a Rs. 1000 note away from big cities, so it’s worth having some smaller notes and coins on hand. 
 

Facts about the currency

  • Nepal’s currency is pegged to the Indian Rupee at a rate of 1 INR = 1.6 NPR.
  • In 2008 the monarchy was abolished. Since then, images of the king were replaced with pictures of Mount Everest on all banknotes. 
  • The NPR came into use in 1932, prior to this the silver mohar was used for almost 300 years. 
  • Nepal’s Rastriya Bank released Rs. 100, Rs. 500 and Rs. 1000 notes with raised black dots, helping visually impaired people recognise the denominations.
