|My wife and I went by walk to Tirumala on 12th September, 2011. I am 69 and wife 59 years old. We started at Alipiri at 6.05 AM and reached the top 3h 45' later. On the way we had breakfast. It was a delightful experience.|
|I am (aged 72 - having arthritis problem on left knee)my daughter 27 and my son 24 started climbing the hills at 7pm on 7-12-2011 (after returning from Kalahasti) and reached the top at about 10.30pm. It was a wonderful experience for all of us. My daughter did not sip water and did not take a single break to sit down. Lord Venkateswara gives all the strength and energy.|
We got free darshan coupons. My children used the same - as a senior citizen I could avail the facility and could not use the coupon.
