Nepal

Nepal uses Nepal Time NPT. NPT is UTC +0545. NPT is one of the exceptional time zones. Most time zones are a number of whole hours ahead or behind UTC. Nepal's latitude and longitude is 28° 00' N and 84 ° 00' E. Therefore being six hours ahead of UTC would be a bit too much. Five hours would be far too little. In fact 0545 hours is close to perfect. There is nothing wrong with being exceptional for rational reasons.
