Money Matters
ATMs are widely available in Kathmandu and Pokhara, but they may be limited in remote areas. It's advisable to bring a backup credit card and some cash (Nepalese Rupee) for smaller purchases and emergencies. Exchange rates are generally better in Kathmandu compared to tourist areas in Pokhara.

Respect the local culture and environment by packing out all your trash and avoiding littering. Support local businesses by shopping at handicraft markets and staying in family-run guesthouses.

Enjoying Your Trip
Nepal is a beautiful country with friendly people and stunning scenery. Embrace the adventure, be flexible with your itinerary, and go with the flow.
