We traveled from Bangalore to Tirupathi. We traveled by bus. Nice roads. It takes about 5 hours journey from Bangalore.

We reached Tirupati around 5AM. After that we went to Thirumala by APSRTC bus. It will take about 1 hour journey from Tirupati. We have taken 300/- darshan tickets. We visited some temples in around Tirupati and Tirumala.

The distance by train is more than road but train journey is cheaper. Being a fast passenger offers only Non-AC reserved accommodation and is comfortable overnighter leaving Bangalore at 20:30 hrs and reaching at 5:30 hrs in the morning. Provides a convenient way to sleep and get fresh for making the darshan next day morning. As its a Fast Passenger category train, the fare works out to be just about Rs.175/- per head for the comfort provided for the section. On weekends the train tends to be more crowded but TTE and RPF ensure that only genuine reserved passengers are present in the reserved sleeper coaches .
