The helicopter rides introduced by Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation (APTDC), are attracting pilgrims to Tirumala. After a darshan of Lord Venkateshwara, pilgrims are taken on a tour of the other pilgrim spots in Tirumala, just for Rs. 1,999 package tour. Two helicopters have been introduced and soon the number is going to increase, the APTDC officials said. The idea is to turn Tirumala into a tourist hub.
