Spending US dollars outside of a city like Kathmandu or Pokhara will be difficult. And even within those cities, businesses accepting US$ will be limited in numbers (hotels, plus some restaurants and shops). As pretty much all access to Nepal is via flights into Kathmandu, why not exchange US dollars for NP rupees upon arrival? One would think that a few ...

My experience is that Euros are coveted there, so in general, nearly all stores and restaurants eagerly take them except government/official stores, like museums.

Best bet is to close out the German account and then deposit the Euros in your USA account. Most major US banks will accept deposits in Euros. You can exchange them at the Dallas airport, but airport rates are usually pretty poor in the USA. You could buy dollars in Europe, but again buying is never the best rate. You could use the ATM card, but that ...
