    I am travelling in my own car (wagonR ) on sunday. Being this is the first time to tirupati ghats, I am worried abt the safety and hairpin bends as my children will face vomitting. Can you let me know, will there be any medical and vehicle assistance available in the ghat roads and also if there is any phone number available.

    Also I need the map of SMC 211 from Kanchi Mutt.


    • Dear Sir,

      You can drive slowly and you can stop at your convenience. While going up it will not take more than 20 mins. It will be easy drive to up hill.
      Down hill will take more time. It will take 35 – 40 mins. You need to slowly as bends are high.

      Medical assistance will be provided in case of emergency. I will get the emergency numbers.
