How can I get the best exchange rate between US dollar and the Nepalese rupee?
To get the best exchange rate between the US dollar and the Nepalese rupee, it is important to first learn the mid-market rate, or the “real” exchange rate, of the currency. Always remember that banks will not give you the real exchange rate when you exchange money with them, but instead charge you a markup on the rate, which varies from bank to bank.
Online money transfer services often offer far better exchange rates than the banks does, and some even let you exchange money at the mid-market rate for a small fixed fee. You can compare many of these online services here on Finder.com to find the one best suited for your need.
If you are planning a trip to Nepal, bringing an international credit card with you and withdrawing Nepalese rupees once in Nepal may be a good option. Foreign exchange transaction fees vary by credit card though, so make sure to check with your credit card issuer first.

What affects exchange rates between the US dollar and the Nepalese rupee?
The Nepalese rupee is currently pegged to the Indian rupee at a rate of 1.60 to 1. Because of this peg, the exchange rate between the US dollar and the Nepalese rupee follows that of the US dollar and the Indian rupee.
Because the Indian rupee officially is a free-floating currency, exchange rates between Indian rupee (or Nepalese rupee) and the US dollar is subject to the supply and demand for both currencies. For example, higher interest rates in one of the countries often lead to higher exchange rates for that currency because more investors will want to invest money in the country with the higher interest rate.
There are currently no signs that the peg between the Nepalese rupee and the Indian rupee is ending. However, if you are looking to make a big investment in Nepal you should look into this more carefully and consult local experts before exchanging your money. For the time being, the Indian economy remains the key factor in determining the exchange rate between US dollar and Nepalese rupee.

How does the Nepalese rupee trade against the US dollar historically?
The Nepalese rupee replaced the old Nepalese mohar in 1932. Between 1932 and 1994, the Nepalese rupee was pegged to the Indian rupee at a rate of 1.45 Nepalese rupee to 1 Indian rupee. In 1994, the current peg was introduced with a rate of 1.60 Nepalese rupee to 1 Indian rupee.
The Indian rupee has in turn been pegged to both the British pound and the US dollar over the years, and the peg rate has been revalued many times. Today, the Indian rupee is officially a free-floating currency. However, the Reserve Bank of India is known to intervene in the foreign currency markets to keep the exchange rate within a certain undisclosed range.
Since 2013, the exchange rate between the US dollar and the Nepalese rupee has remained between 80 and 110 Nepalese rupees for 1 US dollar.
