The far-flung barangay consists of mountainous geographical setting and cool ambiance that made it as the “Summer Capital of Sarangani”. Dubbed as the Baguio of the South, the name Datal Anggas was derived from Blaan words, “datal” which means patag or plain and “anggas” which means source of a water. Upon the creation of Alabel as an independent municipality in 1971, Datal Anggas was characterized as a settlement of the Tagakaolo and Blaan tribe.
