What is the currency of Nepal?

The Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal uses the Nepalese rupee. The currency comes in notes of 20, 25, 50, 100, 500 and 1000 and coins 1, 2, 5, and 10 paisas. As of June 2022, 1 Nepalese rupee is equal to .012 euro. However, this is constantly fluctuating, so be sure to check before your trip. Important to note that the rupee is only notes. One rupee is divided into 100 paisas. The rupee was introduced in Nepal in 1932; before this, the country used the silver mohar (2 mohar is equal to 1 rupee).

If you’re traveling to Nepal as a tourist, your passport must be shown in order to purchase rupees. Most currencies such as euro, dollar, Swiss franc are easily changed in Nepal. If you’d like to exchange money, there are exchange counters in most banks. We recommend asking for reputable places once in a city, not changing at the airport (although it's possible to do so there). Major cities have official money changing facilities, keep in mind that you’ll be required to show your passport.
