The area is slightly highland as against low lands all around. Numerous rivers flow in from Nepal and some of them cross the area. Laukaha is near the India-Nepal boundary and an extension of State Highway 51 (Khutuana-Laukaha Road) connects it to many towns in Nepal.
The area was developed with metre gauge tracks. The 72 km (45 mi) long Nirmali branch (Darbhanga-Nirmali) opened between 1883 and 1886. The Sakri-Jainagar branch was opened in 1905. The Jhanjharpur-Laukaha Bazar line was opened in 1976.
The 268 km (167 mi) long Jainagar-Darbhanga-Narkatiaganj line and Sakri-Laukaha Bazar-Nirmali line were being converted from metre to broad gauge in 2011-2012.
