Note that the monetary unit used in this FAQ is in US dollars ($), or in Nepalese rupees (Rs) unless otherwise stated. The figures quoted pertain to approximate figures at the time of writing this FAQ, 2000. Since prices in the Nepalese economy is inflating at about fifteen percent per year, all figures quoted in Nepalese rupees should be adjusted accordingly. The figures quoted in US dollars, however, will probably remain fairly constant between one year and another because the steady devaluation of the Nepalese rupee against the US dollar generally offsets this inflation.
