How did this village get its name?
The Dusun people were once each other's enemies. One day, people from the other village intruded to pick a fight. However they found no one though they could hear the sound of gongs. The enemies gave up searching for the villagers. They left and said that the villagers must be living in the 'Lobong', Lobong means grave. The thick jungle and spritual power that the villagers practised protected them from their enemies!
