The Old Madras road is the best from Bangalore, roads are wide and less traffic of trucks and buses. Has good eating and eating places on the way. It's just a fabulous temple town to visit except during summer vacations, the crowds can be big and would need 1-2 days to get darshan.

Train journeys are good as well as not so good. First one was Tirupati, nearest places what a great trip with excellent food as well.

After a few more days of eating street food in Tirupati we went to Kalahasti where once again I ordered the food. An hour later when I was served with a cold congealed dinner I stupidly ate the meal and came down with Kalahasti Belly for three days, own fault really.

A while later we went on another train journey, from Tirupati to Hyderabad overnight, sleeping compartment there was three bunks either side. This was great until a family of Indian we were sharing with announced that they "needed" the lower bunks, even though we had the tickets to prove we had booked them.

Never mind, we were good and graciously gave up the bunks. The one of them started to snore, loudly. So loud in fact that a few people throughout the carriage commented upon this fact so, unfortunately, when we next went over a crossing and the train rattled, I was unfortunately so jostled that my foot flew out of the bed and landed on the poor snorer - stopped the snoring I can tell you. Not really proud of that, but it seemed to stop the snoring.

Trains in India are great from a tourist point of view, you really meet the real India, the food and service are generally excellent, the liveliness of the train stations is part of the reason for.

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.
