Hi

The current best route which you can opt to drive to Tirupati is by hitting the NH7 (Bangalore highway)

HYDERABAD - JADCHERLA - MAHBUBNAGAR - NANDYAL - KADAPA - TIRUPATHI .

Usually it takes around 9 to 10 hours of drive time to cover up 550 kms including a lunch break in between considering the highway traffic conditions. Have a safe drive :)

Sreeni,

Route given by sagar is the best route.

HYDERABAD - JADCHERLA - MAHBUBNAGAR -KURNOOL - NANDYAL - KADAPA - TIRUPATHI .

Hyderbad to Kurnool : 4-Lane toll route.

Kurnool to Nandyala : Pending road works but can be done easily.

Nandyala to Kadpa : 4-Lane road (almost finished and tolls are operational.)

Kadapa to Tirupati : 2- lane road. But road condition is excellent.

How is the below road condition from Hyderabad to Tirupati now?

Route: Hyderabad - Kurnool - Nandyal - Kadapa - Tirupati

 It is good, below route is the best route.
 

 Hyderabad to Tirupati route:

Hyderabad --> Narketpally --> Mirayalaguda --> Piduguralla ---> Addanki --> Ongole--> Nellore -->Tirupati


It is completely 4-lane from Hyderabad to Nellore

Road is pretty good.
You can take the NAM express way.

 

Hyderabad to Tirupati best route 2017:

Hyderabad --> Narketpally --> Mirayalaguda --> Piduguralla ---> Addanki --> Ongole--> Nellore --> Gudur -->Tirupati

 

Most of it 4-lane toll road.


Hyderabad to Narketpally : 4-lane : Road condition it excellent : Toll road
Narketpally to Ongole : 4-lane : Road condition is good : Toll road
Ongole to Gudur : mix of 4/6 lane : Road condition is good : Toll road

Gudur to Tirupati : Single lane : Average

 

Narketpally to Ongole has very few food options.
If you are starting from Hyderabad, early in the morning.

Breakfast stop at Narketpally : GPS : Hotel Vivera : https://goo.gl/maps/oYgVnFqNgAJ2
Lunch stop before Nellore : GPS : Hotel N5 food plaza : https://goo.gl/maps/LabRx7Sc8Rx

It all depends on your starting point in Hyderabad. If you are starting from Dilshukhnagar, Uppal -> NAM express (no choice). Excellent road and shortest one.

If you are starting from Gachibowli, you have two options 1. via Kurnool 2. via NAM express

Hyderabad -> Kurnool is excellent. Kurnool to Nandyala -> Excellent new 4 lane road. Nandyala to Kadapa -> 4 lane road with on going work. Kadapa -> Tirupati pathetic 2 lane road.

Either way, the traveling time will be same

Hi!

 

I will be visiting Tirupati this weekend and plan to explore both the suggested routes.

My onward journey would be via Kurnool and Kadapa and I plan to do the NAM expressway in return journey.

 

Any suggestions for good restaurants around Kadapa for lunch would be really helpful. Thanks!

You can try AP tourism Haritha, it is available at the entrance of Kadapa.
Food and Place is decent, don't keep high expectations.

I might not have time to go into Kadapa

 

Kadapa is a small town, there will be around 10/15 minutes difference between ring road and Via town.

If you are driving into kadapa. you can find may restaurants between kotireddy circle and  NTR circle.

and if you are driving into kadapa town it will make minimum of 20-30 mins difference with ring road.

If you want to have non veg try Chennur biryani approximately 10 km before kadapa exactly  after crossing Penna bridge.

this is special in kadapa

@vinz I suggest you to reverse the trip plan. While going, pick the NAM express way and on return pick the Kurnool highway. The reason is simple, by the time you reach Kadapa, you will be tired and Kadapa to Tirupati so pathetic road, it will make you feel so uncomfortable with lots of speed breakers and broken road.

Then in that case maybe I will take the NAM both ways as I need to drop my family in Renigunta airport during the return.

I am planning to start around 5:30 AM from Gachibowli tomorrow morning and I need to reach Tirupati by 3PM.

The only question I have on NAM is about Naidupeta to Tirupati - is it as bad as Rajampet to Tirupati or better?

Naidupeta to Tirupati is excellent 2 lane road. Traffic might be there otherwise its very good road. Nothing to worry

 

Reaching Tirupati by 3PM is tough unless you push yourself.

    • Malgund beach – a hidden paradise
      Note: Lockdown is over not the Pandemic. We request travelers to follow all safety measures.
       
      Malgund beach – a hidden paradise
      A beautiful drive to konkan beach.
      We have taken at most care like,
      -          Used personal car for all drive.
      -          Stayed in friend’s resort which is clean and hygiene.
      -          Used face mask and sanitizers wherever required.
      -          Avoided crowded places. Planned travel on weekdays
      My companion in travel.
      -       Smartphone Poco f1 
      -       Canon 1300d             
      Difficulty level:
      -       No problem for elders and kids.
      Road conditions:
      -       I travelled from Pune, hence took below route
      -       Home in Pune – Satara – Umbraj – Patan – Chiplun – Malgund beach         
      -       Roads are good From Pune till Patan. From Patan to Chiplun roads are average to worst (specially ghat section). From Chiplun to Ganpatipule average (road widening going on).
       
      Best time to visit:
      -       Through out the year once can visit this place.   
       
      Getting There :
      By Air : Nearest airport is mumbai.
      By Rail : Nearest Railway Station is ratnagiri.
      By Road : 1 Km - Distance from ganpatipule to malgund beach.
       
       
      Places to see nearby :
      1. Ganapatipule temple and beach
      2. Pawas
      3. Parshuram temple
      4. Marleshwar
       
      Malgund beach location: https://goo.gl/maps/kwcCd3jUnGa4YCNu6
       
      Malgund, a small village, 1 km away from ganpatipule beach, is known as the birthplace of famous Marathi poet Keshavasuta, who was born here in 1866. He is regarded as a poet who heralded the dawn of modern Marathi poetry. There is a monument at Malgund dedicated to his work and also a museum where you can find information on most of the modern day poets of Marathi language. The memorial is a real treat for people who are interested in Marathi literature. Malgund also houses Nirmal Nagari of Her Holiness Mrs. Nirmala Shrivastava of Sahaja Yoga fame.
      In memories of him kavi keshasut smarak is built in malgund. Many tourists prefer to stay in malgund instead of ganpatipule due to calm and quiet nature and no commercialization.
      We stayed in Sagar Darshan Beach resort. This resort just adjacent to beach and one can enjoy to full extent. I recommend this resort.
      After March, the temperature starts rising but rarely crosses 30 °C. May is the hottest month, with temperatures reaching 40 °C. The monsoon lasts from June to October, when rains are usually plentiful and regular.

    • Hyderabad to South India, First road trip of 2021
      Places Travelled
      Hyderabad - Tirupati - Kanchipuram - Madurai - Rameshwaram - dhanushkodi - palani - Guruvayur - coimbature - Bangalore - Lepakshi - Hyderabad
       
      No. of people 5 in Vitara Brezza
       
      Day 1: Hyderabad to Tirupati Day 2:Dharshan at Tirupati Day 3:Tirupati to kanchipuram Day 4:kanchipuram to madurai Day 5:Madurai to Rameshwaram and dhanushkodi Day 6: Dhanushkodi to gurvayur via palani Day 7: Gurvyaur to coimbatore Day 8: Coimbatore to hyderabad via bangalore and lepakshi  
      First trip of 2021 has became the best trip till now. Travelled around 3500kms. Planned to visit all the places of southern part but rain has ruined all our plans.
      Heavy rains in Tamilnadu.
       
      Best Moment: 
      Visiting my dream place "Dhanushkodi", The Last Road Of India. Everyone must visit, but not while raining. Goosebumps moment when we reach the destination. The sound of waves at one side, eyes full of happiness at another side, this is what everyone needs. 
       
      Road Conditions:
      Overall the road conditions was awesome with minimum potholes.
      A small suggestion: when you travel through some village, it is better to ask localities about the route than blindly believing on Google Maps. If Stuck in traffic by believing on GMaps.
       
      Expenses:
      Diesel: 18000/-
      Food and beverages: 10000/-
      Room: 15000/-
      Toll Tax: 2100/- 
       
      The best food we ate was Dindigul Thalappakatti biryani.
       
      Funny Incident: 
      Bangalore has fined us for not wearing masks inside the car.
      we are not aware that we should wear mask in car while travelling with windows rolled up.
       
      We were by 250rs each. The fun is police where stopping only outside state cars, they aren't stopping Karnataka registered vehicles.
       
      We found few people travelling in KA registered vehicle, they are not wearing any masks. when we ask police to stop them, Cops answer Thum jhakey roko na ghadi ko". This is kind of discrimination which every traveler hates.

    • Kokankada, Harishchandra gad & Taramati peak - A dream climb
      Due to pandemic we have taken at most care like,
      -          Used personal car for all drive.
      -          Used face mask and sanitizers wherever required.
      -          Planned travel on weekdays and believe me it was worth.
      of going towards Konkan Kada. From Kelewadi village onwards, an ascend via the steep slope of Sadhle Ghat brings you on the top. It is best to descend from Harishchandragad via Sadhle Ghat instead of ascending it.
      Route 5: Pachnai
      Pachnai is the simplest route to Harishchandragad and absolutely recommended for anyone of any age. From the Pachnai village, it takes around 2.5-3 hours to reach Harishchandragad. A guide is available at the Pachnai village if required.
      FOOD AND STAY
      A few villagers from Paachnai village make food and tent arrangements at the top of the fort. The meal includes bhakri, bhaaji, daal, bhat, etc. along with snacks such as kanda bhaji, pohe, tea, etc. They stay in a couple of huts near Harishchandreswar temple.

    • Turbo charged engines; do we know other side of the coin?
      Turbo charged engines have slowly started gaining interest in India, rightly so, as they generate power and are fuel efficient. Turbo engines utilize the waste exhaust gases to generate more power, even out of a smaller engine. However, do we know other side of the coin; any potential issues or any longevity concerns of engine in real life? Please share your experiences. Is it worth shedding additional money on, in long term?

      Road trip : Mumbai to Hyderabad.
       
      Old Route:
      Mumbai --> Pune --> Solapur --> Akkalkot --> Kalaburgai --> Sedam --> Parigi --> Chevella --> Gachibowli (Hyderabad)
       
      2021 Route update:
      Mumbai --> Pune --> Solapur --> Zaheeraba --> Gachibowli (Hyderabad)
      It is completely 4-lane road. Do road work we used to divert via Parigi. Now you can stick to national highway.  

      Friends - here's a brief synopsis of the Mumbai to Hyderabad drive on 29th April. Needless to say, @Ranger directions and suggestions were spot-on! ?
       
      Left Mumbai (Powai) at 5am - this was 30 minutes delayed from plan. By 5:45am, covered the 40km stretch to the start of the e-way. Khalapur @ 6am and Talegaon @ 7 am (123 kms from home). Bad traffic on the e-way with lots of heavy vehicles. It was a crawl in the ghats even without a single truck breakdown. exited the e-way at 7:20am. 8:15am & 172 kms - Pune city exit and start of NH 65. Drive through the Pune city section and through 235 kms of NH 65 can be trying because of cross traffic.  Lots of nurseries & eateries in this section till Solapur. At 188 kms, Suruchi Restaurant and many mini restaurants dot the area At 200 kms, Vithal Kamat. For the record, we did not eat at either of these restaurants Refuelling of the Yeti done at BPCL bunk @ 358 kms (10:45am) The only point of confusion was when I reached a fork where the signage indicated the left fork going towards Solapur. Enquired with a local and was told that I should be taking the right fork as that was the Solapur bye-pass The road from Solapur to Akkalkot was a single road with no divider for the majority part. A section of it was getting tarred and there was 1 KM that was particularly nasty. Hit the Moroom Akalkot road @ 445 kms at 12:20pm At 1:30pm and 524 kms away from home, entered Kalaburgai/Gulbarga - the land of toor dal. Pulled into Hotel Lumbini Grand (1:45pm and 532 kms) for lunch. Fantastic recommendation, Ranger!! Good food and neat washrooms. Post lunch at 2:45pm, hit SH10 - 2 divider-less lanes. 4pm and 670 kms fromMumbai, entered the state of Telangana. Road changes character and the smooth Karnataka roads transform into rough patches! We pass by Chevella at 5:10pm (690 kms) Finally, 747 kms later and at 6:35pm, we pull into our destination at Srinagar Colony.  
      Overall, a fantastic drive exposing one to newer facts of the Indian landscape. This trip was all the more brilliant thanks to Ranger razor sharp advice and suggestions . Shall update with toll details and a complete log in a few days. Return journey is yet undecided - it could be either Hyderabad-Bangalore-Mumbai or directly back to Hyderabad. Keep you all posted. Till the, ciao!
