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.

 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!

Usually we take ring road.

If you want proper food options you should drive into the town.

@uday Can you update food options in Kadapa.

I know there are couple of dhabas near Alamkhanpalle. I might not have time to go into Kadapa so any suggestions around the ring road would help.

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

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.

      Finally got a chance to fix my bumper scratches.

       
      Two weeks back I had small bumper damage.
      Minor bumper crack Broken clips Deep scratches
       
       
      Visited showroom:
      Replace rear bumper  Repaint rear bumper Need to order bumper Insurance claim charges Three days time (once the bumper is available)  
      From the past 15 years,
      I never gave my car outside the showroom.
      All the repaint jobs are done at showroom.
       
      Last weekend, I decided to explore lower Tankbund options.
       
      I contacted my friend who live around that area,
      He said most of them does the work well.
       
      We picked a shop that my friend visits for bumper repairs. 
       
      Quote given was 1200/-
      I was in shock :p (my aim was to get it done under 2.5k)
      Price was too tempting to leave,
      I gave a go ahead without any bargain.
       
      Steps
      Reached paint booth at 10AM They remove the fuel cap Took it to paint shop  Got the color premixed They applied some Patti Some rubbing work done Removed tail lamp Fixed the broken bumper clamp Tail lamp fixed back  
      It was like a war zone, 5 members working on it.
      He spotted few scratches on front bumper Asked me another 300/- to fix :o I gave a go ahead Masked all the parts They sprayed 4 different types of paints At 11AM it is done and I out  
      Pros:
      Cheap Quick 100% colour matching Cons:
      Long term reliability Not so professional Ideal for only bumper damages Finishing is not so great, I can feel some rough edges.  
      Ideal place to fix scratches for a 5+ year old cars.
      For new cars it is always better to claim the insurance and fix it. (If you need professional quality)
       
      Removed the fuel cap to get the correct paint

      Applied some patti

      Removed the tail lamp to fix the bumper clamps from inside (to avoid external screws)
      Rubbing is done.

      Had few bumper scratches at the front corner,
      Shop owner asked for another 300/- bucks to fix it, since the paint will be left over.
      I gave a go ahead. 

      They sprayed around 4-layers

      Let the pint dry

      Final output : Front bumper

      Rear bumper

       
      Once I get time,
      I will click pictures in the sunlight for the analysis.

      What is this BOCH: This group was created to provide a platform for Baleno owners from Hyderabad to share and seek information about various aspects like sales, service, warranty, insurance, accessories, modifications et al, and also to engage in frequent meet ups. These meets have helped immensely in knowing each other and also to strengthen the bond among group members. We hope to continue to organize these meet-ups as long as we can. Now the group's count is 160 plus members.
       
      Prelude:
      After the 6th BOCH meet, we decided that we would be taking a long break and no more meetups anytime soon. That was in mid Novermber 2018.  But, as they say, men will be men, and rules are meant to be broken. And so we did exactly that in little over two month's time and completed the 7th meet on January 26, 2019.  And also, 8th meet is not too very far away, planning it in March. So this just goes to show 'the more that you resist the tide, the more it pulls you in'.  It is such an amazing Baleno group with enthusiastic guys who are always ready to meet and explore.
       
      Preparation:
      Unlike our previous short meets, the 6th meet was a special one where we had spent the whole day in a resort. So the plan for the 7th meet was to stretch it for two days with overnight stay and return the next day.  While looking at options, a member shared the travelogue of India-Drive night camping at Koilsagar (done in 2017). Many members showed interest in this and we immediately put the plan into action. With date decided, I did a quick recce of the place. We calculated per-head cost if we take camp tents for rent and carry food. Everyone volunteered to share responsibilities. But the main concern and challenge was to organize night camping (especially with ladies and families involved) at an unknown lake with a large group. We had our apprehensions about permission, locals and security.  So we contacted India-Drive admins and took all the details of the organizer (Hyderabad Adventure & Trekker's club).  After discussing with HAT's club, they agreed to do our event and it proved to be a wise decision in the end. Though the pricing was a tad high but without them we could have lost and wouldn't have enjoyed the way we did. The package included T3 tents for 2 members, dinner, astronomy session and early morning trekking.  As a complimentary, they agreed to shoot our trip without any additional charge. Thanks to Mr.Dheeraj for wonderful arrangements.
       
      Itinerary:
      Reach M Food Court (1st meeting point) located around 75 km from Hyderabad and 13 km after Raikal toll plaza by 2:00 pm. Reach Deverakadra and stop for drone shooting. Reach Koilsagar and search for camp site and sunset shoot. Introduction of members and organizers. Pitch tents and campfire. Followed by Dinner, BBQ, astronomy session and star gazing. At 6:30 am, early morning trekking to nearby hill By 9:30 am, return journey to Hyderabad.  
      How Things Went:
      The day before the meet, Hyderabad city had plunged into gloominess with not so good weather forecast the next day. We were worried about rain at the venue and it may play spoilsport to the event. To our dismay, it started to downpour on the meetup day as soon as we reached outer ring road. So we thought the trip is going to be a dampner.  Luckily, it stopped raining as we were out of the city though it remained gloomy till 1st meeting point.  All the members reached M Food Court before 2 pm (thanks to all for being punctual), but organizers were nearly 45 min late to arrive. We could only continue our journey from M Food court towards Koilsagar at 3:15 pm as opposed to itinerary time 2:15 pm.
       
      Around 4:30 pm, we reached Deverakadra mandal and for about 30-40 min we had drone shooting, line up of Balenos and photo session. We reached camp site at 5:30 and scouted for a nice place to pitch tents and park our big convoy. There were some places already occupied by some others, but we managed to find a decent place. Everything went as planned after that like campfire, BBQ, astronomy session and star gazing, dinner followed by surprise activity with our Balenos, other shoots and of course lots of fun.  Many members were awake till 3 to 5 am (I slept at 3 am) with everlasting discussions.  Luckily, there wasn't a single drop of rain until the next day and we were so relieved for that.
       
      Next morning, by the time we completed our trekking to a nearby hill, it was nearly 9:30 am and it started to drizzle. A few members had fun drifting their cars for 10 minutes in those wet conditions, and finally we bid adieu to Koilsagar - what was a memorable trip!
       
      What We (and I) Missed:
      We could not shoot with drone at camp site because of low light. Forgot to take group pics though we had some pics taken during introductory session. I could not take my Baleno to the trip as our colony road dug up for laying new drainage pipes.😡  
      I let the pictures speak the rest:
       
      Dark clouds looming overhead with rain:

       
      Line up of Balenos at M Food Court attracted quite a few eyes:

      Final group pic of members before parting ways:

       
      Being a part of this wonderful BOCH group and leading it was quite a learning experience for me.  Needless to mention, it enabled me to meet other Baleno owners and avid car lovers from different walks of life. I hope our bond becomes even more stronger as we grow bigger as a group, and embark on many more journeys.
      Hope you liked this short travelogue. Keep traveling and happy motoring!
