Jiangxi is high in the south and low in the north. It is bordered by hills and mountains, the land generally sloping towards Poyang Lake in the north. Hills and mountains exceed 60 per cent of the province's total area. The mountains are not high and have many natural passages facilitating its links with other provinces. The Mufu, Jiuling, Wugong and Wanyang mountains lie in the west; the Dayuling and Jiulian mountains in the south; the Huaiyu and Wuyi mountains in the east; and Lushan Mountain in the north. There are many red-soil hills and basins in the central-south. The Jian Basin in the middle and the Southern Jiangxi Basin in the south are major farming areas. The Poyang Lake Plain in the north is part of the Middle-Lower Yangtze River Plain. With numerous rivers and streams, fertile soil and a dense population, it is known as a "granary south of the Yangtze River". Lushan Mountain with its main peak towering 1,474 meters above sea level on the lakeshore is a famous tourist spot.


Jiangxi has a sub-tropical climate, warm and humid. It has a mean annual temperature of 16ºC-20ºC, increasing from north to south, and a mean annual precipitation of 1,300-2,000 mm. Nanchang is one of the hottest cities in China.


Jiangxi's transport network is composed of the Zhejiang-Jiangxi, Yingtan-Xiamen and Xiangtang-Jiujiang railways, trunk highway lines, the trunk stream of the Ganjiang, and the navigation channel in the Poyang Lake area.
