we are planning to visit Tirupati in late Novemeber. After Tirupati Darshan, we are planning the above itenary "Vellore/Sripuram->Arunachalam->Kanchi" and catch a train in Katpad junction.
1. does this sound reasonable?
2. Is there any other place that we should add?
3. we are planning to cover all these in 2.5 days(i.e start on a friday noon from Tirupati and catch the train in katpad on Sunday Night); Is that feasible?
4. we are planning to take a bus from Tirupati->Sripuram and stay there overnight and take a cab from there on saturday monring to cover Arunachalam and then to Kanchi and dropping us back at Katpadu junction on Sunday evening. how are the cab charges?
5. are there any other travel alternatives like Train/Bus?
6. what is a budget place to stay in Sripuram/Vellore and Kanchi?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi priyakishan,
You can visit thiruthani on the way to kanchi.
I would advice you to stay at kanchi then vellore.
This is how is would plan my trip:
Friday Afternoon = Catch a bus to thiruthani roughly 70 kms on the way to chennai, the bus journey might take around 2 1/2 to 3 hours, climb the hill, visit the temple and travel to kanchi roughly around 50 mms travel time 1 1/2 hours, stay at kanchi.
Saturday = visit kanchi temple and proceed to thiruvanamalai roughly 125 kms, visit the temple and stay at thiruvanamalai,
Sunday = Start in the morning travel to vellore 80 kms, visit the temple and then proceed to katpadi roughly 20 kms.

we have taken the trip in the lasat week of November.
We spent two days in Tirumala. and started in the evening towards vellore/Sripuram.
After the darshan at Sripuram, moved towards Arunachalam and stayed there for the night.
In the morning had the darshan of Arunachalam and started for Kanchi evening. Stayed at Kanchi.
Had the darshan at Kanchi in the morning and started towards Tiruttani by noon.
Had the Darshan at Tiruttani and returned to Tirumala and caught the train in the evening to Hyderabad.
We hired a cab from Tirumala to Tirumala....covering all the places..around 500+kms
A great trip of temples--truly enjoyed.
