ATM is widely in use in Kathmandu and all major cities in Nepal.
Some advise: You don’t have to bring any specialized equipment beyond a pair of comfortable walking boots, a good sleeping bag, and a backpack (frame-less so the porters can carry it in a basket). For a shorter trek, a water bottle, a hat for the sun, a pair of sunglasses, a couple pair of shorts and some raingear are all that are essential. While if you are planning a longer trek, a sweater for cooler nights, a torch and a plentiful supply of socks are worth considering. If crossing a high pass is in your itinerary more serious winter gear will be necessary. For more in detail please log on to: www.immigration.com/nepal
