We went in month of december. Very heavy rains. The tirupati hill is very safe to drive with dividers and blockades on both sides. Amateur drivers can also drive. The route around Kanchipuram was damaged due to rains, so we travelled around it and took some time. Maximum travel time is 6 hours.

The easy way to reach Tirupathi by car is via Chengalpet, Kanchipuram, Tirthani and Tirupathi. The road from Pondicherry to Chengalpet is a safe and beautiful 4 way lane. The road becomes narrow afterwards, but is not having much of a traffic. A famous MURUGAN temple is enroute at Tiruthani. From Renigunta the road is again wide and safe to drive.

The distance between Tirupati and Pondicherry, is almost 230 km. It takes more than three and half hours, to reach Pondicherry from Tirupati. There are trains available between these two places, but they run only run on Wednesdays and take a long time to reach. The best way to reach Pondicherry from Tirupati, is by car. One just needs to get on NH 205 and take a right for SH 106, upon crossing the Anjaneya temple. Again, take a left for SH 58 and following it, will take you to SH 116. Driving for about 35 km along the road, will lead you to SH 5. Moving on for another 38 km on SH 5, will take you to NH66. After a hourís drive on NH 66, you will reach Pondicherry.
