Currency in Nepal

Banks in Nepal will no longer be accepting Nepalese currency with portraits of Nepalese kings as of March 15, 2011.  The new Nepalese currency has a picture of Mt. Everest on it and will be accepted throughout Nepal.  Visitors doing a tour in Nepal are advised not to accept any currency with a picture of a king on it.
