I want's to know about a road conditions in list below which is good for driving, kms is not problem for us 1) Tirupur to Salem NH 7 to Krishnagiri to Palamaner to Chittor to Srikailash kms 486 ( or )
2) Tirupur to Salem NH 7 to Dharamapuri to Thiruppathur to Ambur to Chittor to Srikailash kms is 463 ( or )
Which is best for good driving
I would suggest you the 1st route, though it's a bit longer than the 2nd route, as Krishnagiri route is superb all the way, though a toll route.
We from Bangalore follow the same Palamner route, Chittoor.
Palamner-Chittoor is a single lane twisty roads with humps, Especially in turnings, be careful.
From Chittoor Bypass the route via Bans Hotel is bit patchy, but you get some delicious food on this way, after that you cannot find any decent hotel on this stretch.
From there if you have time, you can do Kanipakkam, the temple may be closed till 3, and open till 6pm.
Then the usual route Alamelu mangapuram-Renigunta-Kalahasti, take right near the arch, and take the back entry route via a muddy patchy road, via river.
That would be shortcut, and you can park the car near temple.
Have a great darshan.
