Regarding the currency exchange from singapore dollar to npr is it only nepal rastral bank can exchange or any other banks. And any money changers too?

Hi

Most banks will exchange SGD into NPR (I suppose not all bnaks have exchange facilities). The Nepal Rastra Bank doesn't but you will not see branches anyway. Money changers will also exchange them too: the rate is not as good as banks but they are convenient.

Getting a SIM card is easy; you will need a copy of your passport, photo and money.

You have 5 days and want to focus on tours. So take a tour around UNESCO heritage sites around Kathmandu valley. Also if you like landscapes, short hikes then you can go to Dhulikhel or Nagarkot. Chitwan and Pokhara are also the best option but you have less time so better to go by flight as Kathmandu has direct connection with these cities.
