Brgy Cabulisan is used to be called as the "Little Baguio in Leyte" because its comparatively cold like the mountains of Baguio City in Benguet (Central Luzon). It sits on the ridge of highly elevated Mt. Sacrepante right on the foot of the mountain wall where what looks like a big ball of rock is embedded. The place is overlooking the Camotes sea in the western part and the belfry of Inopacan Parish church can also be seen from the bordering hills, and one can have a distant view of the mountains in Mindanao across the southern horizon. While on the eastern side is the magnificent mountain ranges of Brgy. Caminto, a quiet and similarly cool place.
Long long time ago, there was a couple who first settled in the area. The wife's name is "Bulisang"and her husband was "Mintong." Eventually, the couple got separated due to petty quarrel. Bulisan stayed in their hut while Mintong went down to the lower ground of the valley and built another hut for him to stay. Thus, the nearby villagers called the two places as "Ka Bulisang" (Bulisang's place) and "Ka Mintong" (Mintong's place). As time passed by, the name stuck and became Cabulisan and Caminto.
Naming a place in this manner is common in olden times, such as the Kabinak (from "Ka Binak," meaning Binak's place) a hill situated along the border of Brgy Tinago and the fishpond of Lloren's.
