DAY-1:- Sir hardly your Train arrives at TPTY at 6am at platform number 02 make sure to get ready before and get down very quickly, then move towards platform number 01 get exit from there hire a Auto rickshaw to Srinivasa Country which in next to APSRTC Bus stand and nearly 1km from railway station and give Rs-30/- to Auto. Before getting in to the auto you speak about the fare or else they will be asking more once you get down at the point…
At Srinivasa Coultry you can get the special entrance ticket for Rs-50/- where you will get 02 laddus in that ticket, this counter opens from 5am to for some hours there is a limit for each and
ever counter across INDIA so as you get down make sure to stand in the line there will be huge line and make sure to stand all the family members no one will be allowed in between the Q...this ticket can be available at APSRTC bus stand but there is so problems and no proper way to get refresh…I think you will ticket for may be between 1pm to 3pm then get refresh all for free no need to pay….
Here I don’t know whether you prefer going Tirumala by bus or by Foot steps….
A) BUS: - After refresh take breakfast near the APSRTC bus stand several good hotels are there then take ticket for Tirumala Rs-44/- which is for a adult for both up & down and valid for 03 day, from Tirupati to Tirumala total distance may be 22kms but not sure it will take 1hr journey and now you are at the top of the hill called as Tirumala enjoy the nature throughout the journey….
B) FOOT STEP:- After break fast take ticket for Alipiri which is the start point of Foot Step, Buses are available from APSRTC bus stand as well as private bus next to the APSRTC bus stand charge may be Rs-06/- don’t hire Auto or jeep. Deposit your luggage take the receipt where you can collect the luggage at Tirumala with nominal rates (lock properly your luggage)a average healthy man can climb the foots in 3hrs but I think you will take nearly 4hrs, steps may be 7500 or near to that& make sure to reach before 2hrs according the ticket timing…
It will take nearly 4-6hrs for Dharshan may be even less depending your luck, after dharshan collect the laddus which is left side of Temple. Make the Room there are many Hotels available please make your choice it is a matter of one Night and to take rest or else come to the Coultry take a locker and just sleep in front of it having your own bed sheet… watch Museum walk distance with in 8pm entrance fee Rs-02/- END OF DAY 01…
DAY-2:- Get ready early morning with in 5am, get a jeep per person Rs-30/- up/down service there are buses available but they do not stops until you finishes the dharshan some 3 to 4 main places which can be covered with in 1 ½ hours please don’t have the Breakfast take a Bus to Tirupati after getting down have your Breakfast. Put your luggage at APSRTC clock room, there are 2 types of local trip available from APSRTC but waste please if you want you can go it’s your wish but I won’t prefer you to go. My suggestion will be you to take Bus for either any one of these places….
a) Srikalahasti which is 37 kms…
b) Tiruthani which is 65 kms…
c) Srinivasa Mangapuram which is 14 kms…
d) Kanchipuram which is 110kms
I think you will return back to Tirupati within 2 or 3pm then go for Padmavathi Temple which is just 4-5kms wife of Lord Venkateshwara/Balaji/Srinivasa take Up/down ticket from APSRTC bus stand may be Rs-10/-. This temple will reopen from 4pm come back to APSRTC bus stand collect your luggage…come to Railway station by Auto as your Train departs from TPTY at 20:55 if you have some more time left in hand go for Govindarajula Swamivari which is very near to Railway station some around 300mts by walk just 5mins back to the Train which might departs from platform number 02…
Hope you have got some IDEA from this Blog, if you need any more clarification or you have any doubt fell free to ask in this site…. And don’t forget to bring me Prasadam (Laddu)…I will wait for that just for fun SIR….
