Did the journey successfully, driving was best part.
Nothing much to update, mukesh has covered everything well.
My observation -
- Bangalore to Tirupati - Roads are in very good condition. Chittoor by-pass has bad roads for about 2 KM, but manageable.
- The ghat section was pretty easy to drive. We were 5 adults and a kid, plus luggage full. I drove easily (mind you it was my first ghat section drive).
- The facilities at Tirumala is bad. Its tough even to get hot water (for my kid).
- Huge rush for darshan, 24 hrs. I would say avoid taking small kid for darshan.
I will upload few pictures.
