Fishtail Race is a fun yet competitive race that takes place in Pokhara valley, Nepal, around the beautiful Phewa Lake. The race aims to combine the grandeur that Pokhara is – a lakeside city below Annapurna range and adorned by Phewa Lake. Surrounded by gorgeous rolling hills all around, Pokhara boasts amazing runable trails that crisscross the entire valley.
