Nepalese Rupee - Travel Money Saving Tips
Nepal might be my favourite place, lovely people, stunning ancient cities, and of course the Himalayas. Do not trek alone, there are frequent changes to the paths due to avalanches and some can be risky. If you hear mule bells on a high path hug the wall. The mules coming will push everything out of their way and you want to be on the good side of that. Avoid water that is not bottled or boiled. Avoid raw vegetables and pre-cut fruit as much as possible.
Do not give money to beggars that you see on the streets. Even though they look pitiful, your giving away of money that will probably go to someone else. Be sure to exchange back all the Nepalese currencies before you leave. They are not accepted (or even exchanged for that matter) outside of Nepal.
Do not fully rely on schedules and times that are committed to you whether in verbal or written while you are in Nepal . They may not commence in time as stated or committed and may end up disrupting all your subsequent schedule. Have time buffer as much as you can between your major plans and activities, especially if you have a hard stop date that you need to fly out by. You can get a visa for Nepal on arrival at the airport, if you are planning to apply for the Visa at the airport, make sure to have passport size photo available. Plan B is to have your photo taken at the booth at the airport.
