Thrillophilia is an Indian Tours and Activities company headquartered in Jaipur, Rajasthan. It was founded by Chitra Gurnani and Abhishek Daga in 2011. In its initial years, Thrillophilia focused on online sales of adventure tours but it later expanded to being a marketplace of tours and activities across Asia.

The corporate outdoor and experiential learning model adopted by Thrillophilia in its early days, has proven to be of great significance since it was fairly new concept in India.[2]

History[edit]

Thrillophilia was founded in 2011 by Abhishek Daga, alumnus of the IIT BHU and Chitra Gurnani alumnus of the Indian School of Business and DA-IICT.[3] Initially they used word of mouth and Digital marketing to popularize their company.[4] Today, as per Alexa traffic rankings, Thrillophilia is among the top 10 Travel Web sites and has been credited with India's largest tours and activities company with more than 8000 tours on website.[5] Thrillophilia claims to have had at least 70% growth every quarter since its founding.[6] The company started with eco tours and experiential tours in 2011 branched out to selling corporate tours, weekend getaways, weekend experiences, treks, camps, activity honeymoon trips and long excursions.[6][7] Further in 2012, Thrillophilia added wildlife getaways. As of today, Thrillophilia employs over 40 people.[8]

Funding[edit]
