you can bring Indian Currency notes upto 100 Rs , Indian Notes 500 and 1000 are illegal to bring into Nepal and if caught they will be confiscated and you will be fined. Once you get to Nepal you can easily change your indian Rs into Nepalese Rs. at any bank or money exchange.

Hi,

Indian Rs are a valid currency in Nepal. As mentioned, do not bring Rs 500 or Rs 1000 notes ... they are illegal in Nepal. In the larger cities (Kathmandu, Pokhara), u can pay with INR for everything. The govt. fixed rate is INR 1 = Np Rs 1.60. If u are going trekking, it will be more practical to exchange ur INR into Np Rs.

Enjoy ur trip ... Nepal is a great country !!!!

cheers,

You Can Buy the Saligrams (Fossil) All Over The Tourist Sight Seeing Spots But You Hardly Find Them On Mukktinath , It is easy to carry them out Of the Country so Be relaxed !!!
