A very tiring journey

Apr 28, 2016
Mode of Transport: Car

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.

Very nice journey

Oct 7, 2015
Mode of Transport: Car

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.

Horrible experience

Oct 5, 2015
Mode of Transport: Car

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.

Quite comfortable journey

Sep 3, 2015
Mode of Transport: Car

It's a very nice experience to take your own time and travel from Chennai to Tirupati by road. We were at ease because we did not want to hurry and wanted to leisurely travel with the family. It took close to 4.5 hours for us from Chennai to Tirupati. We took two breaks on the ways to relax ourselves and have snacks and food as well. Overall it was quite comfortable journey.

Good road connectivity from Chennai

May 27, 2015
Mode of Transport: Car

Went via Thirvallur. Little difficult while passing Thirvallur due to traffic density. Signal boards are missing. One need a GPS guidance to reach the right place and use the right way. Roads are smooth and broad, but night time is difficult due to two way traffic. Overall, not bad, comfortable.
