During summers, early mornings are the best time to visit.

On one side it has the ORR and on the other side it has barren lands surrounded by hills.

    • KIA Seltos scored 3 Stars in NCAP
      KIA Seltos scored 3 stars in global crash test.




       

       
      ADULT OCCUPANT
      The protection offered to the driver and passenger head was adequate, both passenger and driver head bottomed out the airbags. Both adult passenger’s neck protection was good. Driver chest showed marginal protection, while passenger chest protection was good. Driver and passenger knees showed marginal protection as they could impact with dangerous structures behind the dashboard supported by the Tranfascia tube. Driver tibias showed weak and adequate protection while passenger’s tibias showed good and adequate protection. The bodyshell was rated as unstable and it was not capable of withstanding further loadings. Footwell area was rated as unstable. The car offers standard SBR for driver and passenger. All of the above explained the three stars for adult occupant protection.
       
       
      CHILD OCCUPANT
      The child seat for the 3 year old was installed FWF with the adult belt and was not able to prevent excessive forward movement during the impact while it offered poor protection to the head as it contacted with the interior of the car and good protection to the chest. The 18 month old CRs was installed with adult belt rearward facing. The head showed good protection and the chest was protected. The CRSs did not show incompatibility. The manufacturer refused to recommend the CRSs. The vehicle does not offer 3 point belts in all seating positions and it does not offer ISOFIX anchorages. All of the above explained the two stars for child occupant protection.

      Trip Plan – Hyderabad – Kadapa – Tirupati - Tirumala – Srikalahasti - Penchalakona –Miryalaguda
      Vehicle – Maruti Ertiga
      Visited Date - 2nd week of March 2020.
       
      No of People - 4 Members. No of days - 6
       
      As we are just four members so middle and last row seats are folded and made it as Bed for my kids.
       
      I would love for long drives so planned on our vehicle. I always prefer to visit on the way places and want to cover more and more on the trip.
      We should plan well in advance for Tirupati Balaji Darshan. We had planned one month before and booked the 300Rs special entry darshan and booked rooms at All INDIA Arya Vysya Samajam.
       
      Day 1 - Hyderabad to Kadapa – (Distance 415 KM)
      Road Condition - Excellent, Toll -445 Rs.
      We started around 2:00PM from Hyderabad and reached Kadapa by 8:00PM
      I was under impression of 100KM/PH and do not noticed the speed limit is 80KM in the national highway. Speed guns are in place. (1 challana for over speed as I was @91KM/Ph)
      While drive to Kadapa, we search for the hotel and booked it.
      Hotel - Gokul Residency Near TTD kalyana Mandapam (Average and Budget hotel).
       
      Just Started - 

       
      Break -

      Road Condition – Excellent.(without dividers)
      Hotel – All INDIA Arya Vysya Samajam (Any one can book in advance through phone)
      On the way to Tirupati we covered the Vontimitta Kodandarama swamy temple and had lunch in satram (No proper hotels on the way to tirupati).
      Before reaching the Vontimitta we have seen palakova center at right side of the road and the taste is too good. One the way to tirupati many banana shops are there in both side of road.
      We reached Tirumala around 7:00 PM.
       
      Lord Venkateswara Temple(81 Feet Idol) @ Kadapa

       

       
      Kadapa to Tirupati Road( Excellent but no divider)

       
      @Before Vontimitta Palakova center... Taste is super.

       
      Vontimitta -
       

       
      Tirumala Starting Point

        Day 3 – woke up early and came back to Tirupati by bus as we planned to go through steps (3550 steps) and enjoyed a lot in the walkway and had darshan in the evening.
       
      Walk Way--- Kids enjoyed a lot..
       

       
      Day 4 – In childhood, I have visited local places of Tirumala after that I never, hence planned to cover them in this trip and visited these places (Sri Bedi Anjaneyaswami Temple(300 steps up and down), Sila Thoranam, Srivari Paadalu, Sri Venkateswara Museum, Papa Vinasam, Sikhara Darshanam, Temple Museum)
      Mobile GPS is fine to cover these places.
      Checked out from Tirumala and reached Tirupati.
       
      @ Sri Bedi Anjaneyaswami Temple, These squirrel are different and very big and we can see here only.
       
       
      Day 5 – Covered Tirupati Local (Sri Govindaraja Swami Temple, Sri Venkateswara Zoo(Lion Safari) and Chandragiri Palace & Fort.) and started to Penchalakona.
      In the zoo, we can bring our own car inside.
      Lion Safari.

       
      After Lunch, we check-out from Hotel and started towards Penchalakona. ( On the way visited Srikalahasti)
      Tirupati – Srikalahasti – Penchalakona.(Distance – 110Km) Toll -65 Rs
      Road condition – Tirupati to Srikalahasti Avg to below Avg road with heavy traffic.
      Srikalahasti to Penchalakona excellent road without divider, but no proper hotels on this way.
      Reached Penchalakona by 8:30 PM and there were no hotels to stay/food but there was Arya Vysya Satram to stay, we called in advance and booked the room.
      Hotel – Arvya Vysya Satram and Its good.
      There were rooms from Devasthanam but not sure how they are.
