Most Chinese tourists visiting Nepal use Pay and Alipay WeChat, and Chinese citizens operating hotels, restaurants and other businesses in Nepal often use; these pay apps. So when Chinese tourists walk into the shops that opened in Nepal, they choose to use Chinese payment apps to pay. These e-wallets are not registered in Nepal, which means that while the service takes place in Nepal, the actual payment takes place in China.
As a result, Nepal authorities cannot register the use of Chinese tourists as foreign income, because in reality the money has never gone through Nepal banking channels. In addition, this also means that businessmen from China can earn income without paying taxes, because Nepal authorities cannot prove that these transactions occur in their own countries.
