Money and Gratuity
Gratuity is, Since the 1960s when rocket climbing in Nepal was developed, there has been a tradition for groups and independent visitors to graduate their crews at the end of a trek. Money and Gratuity; it is best to bring a mixture of cash, USD, GBP, CAD, EUR. Ensure you have also small denominations. As a guideline for baseline spending money we suggest USD 12 - 20 per meal in Kathmandu(if you drink or smoke or plan some major shopping this could be higher). You should exchange enough money into Nepalese Rupees to last the entire time of your trek BEFORE leaving Kathmandu. There are no exchange facilities in the place along the trail but plenty of money changers in KTM.
