Meet the founders:
Atul Goyal is a backpacker, and he loves being in the mountains. Having worked at the digital payments startup MobiKwik, as Head of Mobile for 4 years, he took a sabbatical and spent 100 days in 2016, exploring the mountains of Nepal, Ladakh, Spiti, and Sikkim which eventually lead him to quit the job and becoming a traveler + entrepreneur.
He was born and brought up in Delhi but finds real peace in the mountains to the extent that it's now much more likely that you'll bump into him somewhere in the mountains, than home. He loves chatting about life, universe, and everything!
Prakhar Gupta, is a casual traveler who has to travel to Goa once every year for some reason(which cannot be disclosed in public domain)! Apart from lazing around on beaches, he is fond of trekking and camping. He likes to travel slow, and his favourite aspect about traveling is meeting new people. So if you spot him anywhere, please stop him and say Hi!
After graduation from IIIT-Delhi, he worked at MobiKwik for about 2 years. He is a DotA addict and still sneaks in an hour or two of gaming everyday. Apart from DotA he likes to kill his time lurking on Reddit.
Geet Tiwari is a solo traveller and an orophile. She worked as an executive in bajaj allianz general insurance, guiding people towards the nitty gritties of insurance, networking and maintaing cordial relationship with the agents. Her exuberant and extrovert nature and the zeal of meeting and interacting with new people eventually lead her to quit the job and becoming a traveler + entrepreneur.
She was born and brought up in Delhi but since she is a pahadi by blood, she finds herself being pulled towards the mountains everytime where she finds her home. She is also a dog lover, poet, a writer and an avid reader and you can always find her with a book in her hand or a qoute in her conversation!

She loves reading, writing and exploring different cultures and cuisine. Being a Keralite at heart, her favourite food item is Dosa and Sambhar.
