The Municipality of Pantukan is the oldest town in the region. The first inhabitants of the place were the Mansakas and Muslims who made up the Kalagan tribe. The name Pantukan was derived from the name of two powerful datus known as Pantu and Kan who ruled the place. Both datus struggled power and their continuous effort to win over the other led to their downfall.

 

Pantukan was created into an independent and regular municipality on November 13, 1936 through Executive Order No. 64 issued by then Pres. Manuel L. Quezon.

 

High mountain ranges and steep slopes characterized the topography of the municipality. Fifty percent of the areas have slopes of more than thirty percent. Twelve percent of the areas is flat to gently rolling terrain. 913 hectares are devoted to agricultural crop followed by banana, rice, corn, vegetables, and root crops.
