Hyderabad to Dwaraka Tirumala - Proposed dates : 15Oct to 17Oct
I've tried extracting information on the route to Dwaraka Tirumala from Hyderabad and haven't found anything on that. Hence started to preapre one self here.
I'm planning to drive to Dwaraka Tirumala from Hyderabad along my family - self, wifey and son - 2.3 Yrs.
Need help in finalising the following :
1. Vehicle Advice:
I'm going to use my newly procured - Wagon R (Black Colour) from Maruti True Value ( RK Saboo / Somajiguda). Any specifice tool / product / precaution that need to be take for using this vehicle. I've got it serviced about 4 weeks back and intent to get that done again before I go on this trip.
2. Route Advice :
I'm a driver with experience of about 20K Kms in the city but with very less exp on highways (less thank 1K). Need advice on the route:
a. Hyd - Suryapet - Vijayawada - Bhimadolu - Dwaraka Tirumala
b. Hyd - Suryapet - khammam - Jangareddygudem - Dwaraka Tirumala
Heard that lot of work happening on hyd - bza highway, any update on the current status ? I'm a safe / slow driver with speeds generally not crossing 60 - 70 KmPH but not very experienced with overtaking and other highway activities.
3. Time / Schedule Advice :
I'm planning to start early in the morning (say ay 5.00 / 5.30 AM) in the morning on Friday and intend to reach Tirumala by lunch / late afternoon - not sure about the time frame required to reach so pardon my ignorance ! Would start the return journey on Sunday at 6.00 AM and reach Hyd by lunch.
4. Eating out / Lodging :
Any recommended palces in the routes requested for breakfast & Lunch ?? It would be of great help if someone can help with the details (contact inforamtion) of advance reservations of lodging in Dwaraka Tirumala as it is the time of dussera hence the rush might be high.
This being the first long / highway trip with the family, I'm trying to make it as planned as possible to make it a memorable trip. Hence need to advice from all you experience highway drivers on that. Also add anything that might be of help incase if I missed mentioning here.
I'll post my travelouge once I return to Hyderabad.
Thank you all for all the wonderful information made available on this website.

Nice to see that you are starting your journey at T - BHP with a travel query.
Please find below the answers for your query.
Don't worry much about the HW experience you have. Four years back I had just 500 Kms of experience on any roads when I took up my first HW drive and now I have 1 Lac Kms experience.
There are very options for stay in Dwaraka Tirumala. You can book a room in Punnami run by APTDC and thats the best option available.
Feal free to call me at any time you need more information about Dwaraka Tirumala. I have PM you my number.
