Indian currency of denomination Rs.100 & below are widely acceptable in Nepal. However, if you are carrying
currency in above denomination you can get it ex-changed from money changers situated at Kathmandu International Airport, within city OR at border entry points while entering thru road. Indian ATM card (International Debit Cards) are also acceptable & can be used to withdraw money (bank charges applicable).
3-Calling Back To India
Calling from Nepal to India is always economical. Calling charges are almost 1/3. So, it is always advisable that you
must purchase a Nepali SIM card at the moment you reach. Most of the hotels have Wi-Fi facility so you can use
WhatsApp voice / video calling. However, your Indian SIM cards with international roaming facility will also
work, but charges are very high.
Electrical outlets are of the threerounded-prong type (plug type “D”), however, US-style and European-style
outlets are often found in tourist places. Voltage is 220 volts @ 50 Mhz.
Your USB-charged devices and electronics with transformers are probably made for dual voltage and will work fine.
