Kalphite Guardians can be found in the Kalphite Lair - deep beneath the Kharidian Desert, which is located south-west of the Shantay Pass, Al Kharid. An alternative route upon completion of Death to the Dorgeshuun, lies south of Dorgesh-Kaan, beyond the Dorgesh-Kaan Agility Course. They can also be found in the Kalphite Cave; a Slayer task is required to kill them there.
Players will need a rope in order to access the Kalphite Lair.
It is necessary to bring some form of Antipoison if using Melee to kill these. There are Ranged safespots at the entrance to the caves due to the size of the creature.
Kalphite Guardians will inflict poison very frequently (even if you have the Protect from Melee prayer on) which starts at 6 damage. They can hit for up to 12 melee damage and are quite accurate. They can be safely ranged from a couple of locations. Kalphites are most vulnerable to crush style attacks, so an abyssal bludgeon or Inquisitor's mace are the best choices of melee weapon to face them.
