Bhutan Travel Information  
 
Currency

Bhutan’s currency is called the Ngultrum (Nu). The Ngultrum is further divided into 100 Chetrums(ch). The paper notes are found in Nu.5, Nu.10, Nu.20, Nu.50, Nu.100 and Nu.500. You may also find some paper notes of denominations Nu.1 and Nu.2 which are not printed anymore. Coins are available in denominations of Ch.5, Ch10, Ch.25, Ch.50 and Nu.1.

Traveling with foreign currency:
Indian currency the rupee is accepted in Bhutan with equivalent status, i. e. 1 IRs = 1 BNu. US dollars and dollar traveller's cheques can be exchanged at banks and the larger hotels. Carry Bhutanese Nu or Indian Rupees of all denominations, especially the smaller ones, while travelling in Bhutan.

Banks:
Bhutan’s national bank the Bank of Bhutan operates in major towns of the country.

Credit Cards & ATMs:
Credit cards are still uncommon in Bhutan. Although Bank of Bhutan began its ATM services from its Phuentsholing, Thimphu, & Paro branches since December 2007, you’ll find it far easier to carry cash notes while traveling in Bhutan.
