Your Hotel’s reception changes money at reasonable rates. Also, in Thamel (main tourist hangout place in Kathmandu) there are many money changers as well. You need to produce your passport or its copy while changing money. Kathmandu now has some ATM machines which accept VISA, Master cards and Switch cards.
We find it very important that our travelling contributes to the preservation of Nepal’s fragile and beautiful nature. We encourage Kipling Travels and Explore Himalaya to start working with different tea-houses / lodges and hotels on sustainability initiatives- like waste recycling, solar heating etc.
