Either are easily changed in Kathmandu and Pokhara. It's not worth the cost of buying $ in the UK - take £, either in cash or travellers' cheques.

Euro, USD, British Pounds, Australian Dollars, Canadian Dollars etc are easily accepted in Nepal. Saying again all major foreign currencies are accepted in the money changers and banks.

Last time I went, I brought Euro and a little USD (left over from another trip). But there are plenty of ATM's in Kathmandu and Pokhara, som you can easily get acces to money if you have VISA card or simmilar to that.

Enjoy your stay in Nepal.

Take whatever currency you have, but only up to Kathmandu! No use of other currency other than Kathmandu/Pokhara
