Smile Bangalore to Tirupati

Hi guys,

I am sharing my Experience of Bangalore - Tirupati trip which i finished today.

Onward > Bangalore - Hosakote - Kolar - Mulbagal - Palamaner - Chittor - Tirupati - Tirumala

Well, I started at 4 PMTuesday,It took 1 hour to reach Hosakote from Bangalore , due to traffic, after that raods are good but lots of Divertion due to 4 lane expansion, u have to rally watch out while overtaking, u can speed-up to 100 easily on this road, then i remeber i passed railway crossing near by Kolar at 5.36 PM. after that i tool Mulbagal road.. there u have only 2 lane road, still i was driving at 80-100... crossed palamaner ... and reached chittor by 7.30PM.. i took city road and stuck into jam for 30 min, after that i took NH-18 , what a road, 100 KM/h mark.. i checked my swift upto 130 ... really enjoyed... entered tirupati by 8.45 Pm , it was good drive with one break of 15 min to get refresh....


Return > Tirumala - Tirupati (Bypass) - Chittor (Bypass) - Palamaner (Bypass)- Mulbagal (bypass) - Kolar (Bypass) - Hosakote - Bangalore


This was really amazing and took exact 5 hour in day time.

i started from tirumala at 8.45am & reached tirupati in 30 min, then visited Padmavati temple after that i had breakfast, i left tirupati at 10am , and took bypass road.. which merge at NH-18. That road was good , i enjoyed at 100-110, there i saw a board saying chittor is 60KM , finshed that strech in 40 Min, there i took chittor bypass road , not good , u can't drive more than 70 -80... That road took me to Palamaner then mulbagal, i drove almost 100 - 120 on that section, NO LUNCH BREAK in journey... i hit NH4 by 1 PM, From there again i took Kolar bypass reached hosakote by 2 PM.. Again traffic and it took 1 hour to reach my place...

Overall , i had good driving except few Speed breakers [UNSIGNED] , people in village they don't listen HORN.. third, Moped riders, they will wait for u to come and hit , but never leave road... u have to really watch out for those things while passing through village.. other wise ...

Nice a crisp write up. Do give some details of booking and how much time you took for darshan and include pics. Then this will be a complete travelogue.

A little too crisp! I had to read it twice to identify what vehicle he drove, overlooked it the first time.

Chittor to Tirupathi road is tempting with the 100 kms speed limit markers (can do a cool160 plus), but as mentioned beware of the villagers. More details on Darshan booking and time will help.

For this trip i booked online ticket at Tirumala Tirupathi Devasthanams - e-Services three months in advance. i purchased 200 INR ticket and darshan timing was 0530 AM and it took 1.30 hour to finish darshan. There is no commercial hotel overthere, u need to donate money or book from central office nearby temple.
