Currency

The Bhutanese currency is called Ngultrum (BTN/Nu), and is pegged to the Indian Rupee 1:1. This currency cannot be exchanged from Denmark. Therefore always have US Dollars or Euro either in the form of cash or travellers checks with you.

You will find a few possibilities of using credit cards in shops or hotels (charging high commission), and it is now possible to withdraw money from ATM’s from banks in Bhutan using credit cards such as Master Card, Visa and American Express.
