Jalal-Abad Province, also know as Jalalabat (Kyrgyz: Жалалабат областы), is a province ("oblast") of Kyrgyzstan. Its capital is the city of the same name, Jalal-Abad.

The area has several mountain lakes, walnut forests, and mineral waters. It has also the world's largest natural growing walnut woods, called Arslanbob, which covers a large part of the region. An integral part of the country's power system is Toktogul hydroelectric power station which supplies electricity and water to both Kyrgyzstan and neighboring countries.

People in the region grow wheat, fruit, vegetables, maize, nuts, tobacco and silk-worm cocoons. The province also has a few textile plants and hydroelectric stations. Minerals, natural gas, coal, metals and oil can be found here, most notably in the town of Kochkor-Ata, which is home to small scale oil industry.

Sary-Chelek is a nature reserve in the Jalal-Abad province with a beautiful alpine lake surrounded by wild fruit orchards and peaks. There are unlimited trekking possibilities in the area, although the lack of infrastructure can make this problematic.

A few Soviet-era resorts offer mineral water treatment programs for people with various chronic diseases. A number of companies have succeeded in trading bottled mineral water around the country and abroad.
