Hi All,

 

I have completed Hyderabad -> Tirupati -> Hyderabad

 

Took both the routes.

 

while going I took 
Hyderabad --> Kurnool -> Kadapa -> Tirupati

There are few bad patches and few single lane stretches. 

 

 

While coming back, I took 

Tirupati --> Nellore --> Narketpally --> Tirupati

NAM expressway is good.

 

Also I met a India-Drive member at Tirupati.

Few clicks

Thanks for the update. How much time it took for both the journey?  Kurnool - Kadapa four lane is completed?

I felt, time is almost the same.

If you have fast car, may be NAM (via Ongole) can be an advantage. 

Overall, average will be higher.

Around 5~10 kilometeres is under construction. 

Road is good.

But once you cross Kadapa, it is single lane and speed bumps killed the average. 

 

Both the roads are fine.

My personal choice is via Nellore.

For me Kurnool -> Kadapa -> Tirupati is 70 km shorter would prefer that, do you think it is possible do it in 8 hrs? if I start around 5AM.

It took us around 10 hours+, to reach the hill top.

Two quick breaks for breakfast and lunch.

We were driving in two cars, Duster and Innova.

 

We have driven in relaxed manner.( never crossed 120 kmph)

May be you can shave off an hour. 

I don't think it is possible to do it in 8 hours.

People driving from Hyderabad to Tirupati usually take Kurnool route.

While coming back they take NAM expressway, So that they can cover Kalahasthi temple.

I did both routes. Best is via Miryalaguda-Adanki-Nellore. As Kurnool to Kadapa 4 lane work is still pending and have diversions. Kadapa to Tirupathi is 2 Lane with many speed breakers (4 per each village) and will be trouble some in night.

Even I felt the same. 

But both roads are fine.


There is no drastic difference between the two,
Given a choice, I would pick NAM expressway over Kurnool route.

Just did the Hyd to tirupathi stretch yesterday.Picked my as-usual route via kadapa(my native place).

From Hyd to Kadapa except that nandyal town in and Out passes are pathetic to run over but one can glide it in 15 mins during non rush hours.

And from kadapa to tirupathi asusual and nothing new and the roads are below average.

Overall it took 8 hours for me including two pitstops and bio-breaks.

From Hyd to Kadapa ,Superb roads all over and except that Nandyal town in and Out passes are pathetic to run over but one can glide it in 15 mins during non rush hours.Especially Kurnool to kadapa stretch allowed to use my beast's Cruise control happily as there was less traffic compared to NH44.

Hi @SVVP, you can stick to the route below

 

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

 

I would recommend you to start before 6 AM in the morning so that you can reach Tirupati by 5 PM. You can stop by for lunch at Hotel Vivera or NH5 Food Plaza in Narketpally

 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

https://www.india-drive.com/index.php?/topic/109-nam-express-way-review/&do=findComment&comment=1293

 

 

 

Hyderabad --> Narketpally --> Mirayalaguda --> Piduguralla ---> Addanki --> Ongole--> Nellore -->Tirupati     Is this NAM Express Highway? Do we have enough gas stations and what would be the traveling hrs?

      Can anybody suggest good roads in and around Hyderabad with minimum or no Traffic to Test drive and push down the gas pedals.

      #One Baleno#6 Souls#One destination#tones of memories#Bucket list tick#Gandikota Belum caves
      Trip planning started 6 months before and it kept on changing. Finally accommodation booked and trip scheduled on 24.Jan.2020.

      Thanks to Ksk (Sathish) and Dishari for continuous guidance on route and stay.
      Car: Baleno ZETA CVT
      Members: 4 Adults and 2 kids
      Places visited: Gandikota & Belum caves. One can visit places like Owk reservoir, Yaganti temple, Orvakal
                     rock garden based on time availability.
      Route taken: Hyd-Kurnool-Nandyal-Gandikota-Belum caves-Banaganapali-Betamcherla-Kurnool-Hyd
      Road conditions:
                  - Hyd-Kurnool-Nandyal: Roads are good
                  -   Nandyal-Gandikota: Roads are good. 50 km before Gandikota roads are average to bad and
                     passes through villages.
      -  Gandikota-Belum caves-Banaganapali-Betamcherla-Kurnool : Roads are average and passes
      through villages. Once you touch NH40 then roads are good.
      - Kurnool-Hyd: Roads are good.
      - Route map provided for ref.

      Distance traveled: ~ 800 KM
      Toll charges (Fastag): Rs. 650
      Petrol expanse: Rs. 3700
      Difficulties:
      Trip was awesome, except Aarav (my son) fall sick on day of trip with viral fever. But throughout trip he supported us with his smile. The complete success of trip goes to him.


      At Gandikota you need to wear good shoes to walk on rocks along with comfortable cloths.
      Avoid it during summer & heavy rains.
      People with breathing and BP related issues should avoid Belum caves.
      Stay option at Gandikota:
      Option 1: Non AC tents
      Cost is Rs. 1000 per person with food on twin sharing basis.
      The only problem is during rainy season this will not be good. Also for common washroom, you need to travel 500 m.
      Option 2: AC tents
      Very costly around Rs. 3000 per person with food on twin sharing basis. Sometime even they charge Rs 3500. Tents without food charges will be Rs. 3000 on twin sharing basis.
      Need online booking via freakout.
      Washroom is attached to tent.
      Opion 3: AC rooms at Hariths resorts
      We found this good and reasonable. Per room cost is Rs 1600 from Mon-Wed and on Thur-Sun it will be Rs. 2000 (taxes extra).
      Rooms are good and 500 m away from site.
      Rooms being limited we need to book online via AP tourism website.
      Food options at Gandikota
      Only food option is Haritha resort (if you have not booked tents). We found food is average and can be manageable. We have carried electric cooker and prepared food by our self.
      Food options at Belum caves
      There is a small hotel available near to booking window. They serve cold drink, water and snacks.  We found food is average and can be manageable.
         
        You can enjoy this trips in 2 days. I advise you to make it on weekdays as there will be less rush. For us it took 3 days as we are travelling with kids and we don’t want to drive in night and early mornings.
      Disclaimer: Not all of the photos are taken by me. Few are from my friends mobile.
      Photographic device:
      Poco f1
      Oneplus 7T
      Canon 1300D
      Xiomi note 6 pro
      Beauty of place you can derived from photos.
