Misaligned SRTM coordinate system ...

I'm doing research on the Kathmandu Valley, Nepal.

I have downloaded an SRTM DEM of the area and have this is Arc. I have projected the data frame in UTM WGS 1984 45N which I'm sure is correct for this area, but the coordinates for the city seem slightly misaligned with those given in Google Earth;

[INDENT]Arc = 8534... 2769...[/INDENT]
[INDENT]Google Earth = 8520... 2741...[/INDENT]

Does anyone have any idea how I can correct this?

Many Thanks,
