Municipality of Naval, Biliran Province
Libtong, Biliran Island, Philippines
Libtong. This word means â€œthe deep part of a stream or riverâ€E[Lisboa 1865, 222]. The name Libtong seems to have survived the alteration of its geographic make-up; the barangay is no longer on sunken ground. The canyon and river here must have been filled up with lahar during the eruptions of the volcano in nearby Caibiran in 1800 and 1939, respectively [Borrinaga 2007, 16]. The original settlers here were presumably native laborers and Spanish foremen who worked in the nearby sulfur fields (solfataras), to gather sulfur for the making of gunpowder.
It has a population of 989 (2010 Census).
