We hired a Zoom Car (Maruti Ciaz) and drove from Chennai to Tirupati. The road upto Tirupati is quite good. (Broad and two lanes at least). Not many restaurants or hotels on the road (So plan your toilet pitstops accordingly).

The road from Tirupati to the Tirumala mountain has a lot of traffic and takes time to travel (Since it is a mountain region).

Tirupati is a very crowded place so we had booked a special darshan for Rs. 300. Still we had to stand in queue for more than 3 hours.

The whole trip took one full day (Started in the morning and reached back at night).

The trip was worthwhile for the spiritual belief that people hold for the temple, otherwise its a very tiring journey.

As we didn't get reservation before we tried in tatkal luckily we got berths without waiting list, we enjoyed a lot by cracking jokes on each other and teasing our friends and we got down in Renigunta there we had upma it is simply awesome. From there we went to Tirupati. We stayed there in a hotel next day we went to Tirumala by walk from Alipiri and had lord venkateshwara's darshan and we came back to Chennai.

We took the bus from Chennai bus stand around 10 pm. The bus was semi sleeper. Total journey was around 3 hours from Chennai to Tirumala. Vus seat was average and journey was very smooth. We dont have to pay anything except the original charge which was around 400 rupees.

I had my first travel by my own car. While going from Chennai we took the route of Tada and while return we took Thiruthani route.

I would rate 4/5 for tada route and 3.75/5 for thiruthani route.

Very nice journey. We started around 7 AM in the morning and we reached kalahasti by around 9.45 Am. We started from Kalahasti by 11:00 and reached tirupati by 12:30. We took a normal speed drive. The route was very neat.

Very poor roads. You can't see speed breakers because they were not painted. A group of People will stand near speed breakers, when you suddenly stop the car, they will stop your car to get money from you.

While returning you have to come by 45 mins. That too you must come very slowly.
