I cannot stress enough to get your money converted BEFORE you hit Kathmandu airport! If you’re planning your travels and they involve Tribhuvan International Airport, DO NOT use the IME Pay currency store just outside the front doors! I didn’t realise until too late that the guy took nearly half of what I should have been paid! Part my mistake but WTF? How the hell are these people allowed to operate in a prime position is beyond me.
So far, both my border exchanges have been a rip-off where imberciles take full advantage of either tired or rushed visitors.
