Jalpaiguri lies between 2631'N 8844'E26.52N 88.73E. It has an average elevation of 75 metres (246 feet). Jalpaiguri is located in the middle of the vast fertile plains (Terai) south of the Himalayas, watered by innumerable rivers and rivulets rising from and flowing down the Himalayas.

Jalpaiguri is well known as a district with abundance of beauty. From time immemorial, this land remained a pristine creation. Covered with dense forests and riverine grassland, Jalpaiguri is the harbour of one of the richest bounties of wild life and panoramic grandeur. Veined by mighty rivers like the Teesta, Torsa, Jaldhaka, Dyna, Neora, Sankosh etc., this piece of land has been aptly named as the land of Tea, Timber & Tourism . The district is the gateway to the entire North Eastern States and Bhutan. Different cultural groups like Bengalis, Rajbanshis, Ravas, Totos, Mechs, Santhals, Madesias and Oraons have created a unique cultural harmony in this part which is rarely seen in other districts of West Bengal.

The town lies on the banks of the Teesta River, possibly the second largest river in West Bengal after the Ganga. A mass flood in 1968 nearly flattened out the town and huge spurs had to be built and the river diverted to some kilometers outside the town to avoid the same carnage as it caused. Other than Teesta, there are three other rivers passing by the town: Karala, Dharala and Panga. The tiny River Karala flows through the middle of the town bisecting the town into two halves, thus prompting the remark, 'the Thames of Jalpaiguri'. Karala meets the Teesta some five kilometres south of the town.

The town experiences three seasons, namely Summer, Monsoons and Winter. Summers are tropical and quite hot with temperatures ranging in the mid-thirties. Monsoons are very severe with the town experiencing high amount of rainfall, sometimes stalling all life and activities. Winters are again quite severe and chilly, with the cold Himalayan winds blowing straight into the town. Temperatures are around 3 to 8 degrees Celsius during this period.

The economy of the town is centred around the tea industry. A Tea Auction Centre has recently come up in the town. The second largest employer in the town is the Government. Jalpaiguri is home to a number of district-level and divisional-level offices, thus having a large government-employee workforce. The recent setting up of the North Bengal bench of the Kolkata High Court has only added to the numbers. Business in the town is mainly centered around retailing goods, with the main centres around Merchant Road, D.B.C.Road and Temple Street.

An industrial park just 10 km from the town en route to Siliguri has come up at Raninagar. A number of companies like Coca Cola, Monginis etc., have set up shop there.
