This is one of the most lovely experience at an affordable and easy way. To go to Tirupathi the roads are good and as well as excellent around Andra Pradesh. This is the most existing and funny ways to go to Andra. There's style, food, climate, weather, respected peoples etc they are like god how much we can say more about them.

Bangalore to Tirupati by Andhra Pradesh State Road Tourist Corporation (APSRTC) bus was good. It was an amazing journey and Tirumala Venkateswara Swamy is a real god.

Travel to Tirupati was really an un-forgetable memory. The nature was pretty good. The darshan of lord Venkateshwara was really a blessing of god. The places near by such as Papanashinam (means water coming from top of mountains and over flow the dam, by taking bath in water will vanish all bad things that we have )it is about 5 km from Tirumala and another one is Akasha Ganga meaning Akash means sky and Ganga means water from upper head of Shiva. So who saw all the places and took bath in the water. It is just 3 km from Tirumala .Theses above said places will cover forest to 900 percents of natural beauty.

Bangalore to Tirupati is one road trip I take regularly and even my kids enjoy the trip. We took off in my Swift Dezire. The distance between Bangalore and Tirupati is 246 km and the road goes through Kolar, Mulbagal and Chittor. If we need to talk about condition of roads, we can talk in two half’s. One from Bangalore- Mulbagal ( Andhra Pradesh border) and second from AP Border to Tirupati. The road between Bangalore till AP Border is four lane highway excellently laid and smooth to drive. While there are few diversions from Mulbagal to the border, you can still drive at 100 KMPH. You can see the difference once you cross the border post where the road becomes narrow and you may have to negotiate with large trucks at times.

From Mulbagal till Palamner you would find that the comfort of highway is gone. The traffic from Palamner to Chittor is decent and the traffic increases once you cross Chittor ( please take bypass at Chittor). It would again reduce once you take a right diversion towards Tirupati about 20 km from Chittor.

The route has good restaurants and coffee days all along the road till Chittor. I didn't see much between Chittor and Tirupati but since the distance is just an hour, your requirement for a restaurant would only come near Chittor.

I had been to Tirupati from my childhood and all I have been seeing all these days are mediocre hotels in the name of star properties but once I have found this awesome hotel which had the true star class best suited to its name.

The hotel was prominently located next to Shilparamam...more »

Bangalore -Tirumala (Tirupathi) was a two day trip. 615 km and we had loads of fun.

I recently did the Bangalore - Tirupathi Vari Temple -> Bangalore trip and here's the travelogue.


Preface
This has been pending from past 5 years at least and we have not been able to decide or had the courage to go to Tirumala (Tirupathi) as were scared of the long queues as described by fellow friends etc. But this time we decided, lets do it and we did it :)

Route taken
Took Bangalore- K.R.Puram Bridge- Hoskote- Kolar- Chittor-Palamner- irupathi-Tirumala. (Thanks to Mukesh from TAI).

Did all the research on the route and downloaded the same on the iPod Touch so that we can follow the guidelines. Had Google Maps connection all the way but did not really use it much as the route was pretty much simple and straight.

Packed some clothes for a changeover at Tirumala and carried some food stuff etc for kids as we were not very sure on what we will get on the way. But as fellow TAI'ns suggested we were expecting to get some South Indian snacks on the way at-least.

Started from Bangalore at 6:30 am from South Bangalore via Bannerghatta Road- Koramangala- Indranagar- Old Madras Road- K.R.Puram Bridge- Hoskote- Kolar- Chittor- Palamner- Tirupathi- Tirumala.
