Baguio. It is bounded on the north by the town of Kiangan,
on the east by Lagawe, on the south by the town of Bagabag in the province of Nueva Vizcaya,
and on the west by Asipulo municipality. Terrain is characterized by rolling hills and high mountains. There are several small rivers and
creeks which cascades from the mountains towards Ibulao River or Magat River.

Lamut is 27 kilometers away from the Capital town of Lagawe. The people are mostly Ifugaos who have migrated
from the older towns of Ifugao namely Kiangan, Lagawe, Banaue, and Mayoyao.
As a matter of fact, many families have roots in barangays Ducligan of Banaue and Ayangan of Mayoyao.
There are some Ilocanos who migrated from Nueva Viscaya and from the Ilocos Region. Its first mayor was Guinid Tuguinay.
The town is home to the Ifugao State College of Agriculture and Forestry which have its main campus in Barangay
