Banjarumale Hills is home to "Malekudiya" tribal people living deep inside the forests on the Western Ghats in Dakshina Kannada and is located on the Charmadi Ghat Road (Mangalore-Chikmagalur Road).

Banjarumale is 110 km from Mangalore. It is 18 km from Kakkinje, the nearest village situated on the Mangalore-Chikmagalur Road, which could be reached by road. Otherwise, one has to get off a public transport at Ninth Cross on the Charmadi Ghat Road and walk for about 10 km inside the forests on the mud road. One can travel by jeep on the same road. The tribal people have been demanding that the Government asphalt this road.

It takes over one hour to reach Banjarumale from Kakkinje by jeep. However, the journey to Banjarumale on road is not easy. One has to be careful about wild elephants that suddenly appear from the forests. This is one of the best place to go trekking in the wilderness or if one wants to go for a quick weekend sojourn.
