The town of Boliney is situated 62 kilometers of the capital town of Bangued, and 24 kilometers eats of the town of Boliney. It is used to be reached by hiking the 24 kilometers mountain trail. Now there is a road which was completed in 1974.

Year by year after 1974, the road was extended to about 14 kilometers before reaching Danac, the farthest barangay. The road is now as far as the Poblacion, the rest of the road having been abandoned. The municipality has eight barangays, populated by about five thousand people, representing the Cordillera sub-tribes, namely; Masadiit of the Tinguian Tribes, Belwang of the Igorot and Balatoc of the Kalinga tribe. Descendants of the other Tinguian sub-tribes are also represented in Boliney such as Binongan, Banao, Maeng, Ammotan (now called Muyadan of Manabo).

Boliney is bounded to the north by the municipalities of Sallapadan, Bucloc, and Daguioman, to the east are the provinces of Kalinga, Apayao, Mt. Province and the Municipality of Tubo and the west by the municipalities of Luba and Manabo. The main source of livelihood of the people of Boliney comes from their rice terraces. But most of their rice lands were either seriously damaged or totally lost due to the landslides, mud piles, and caused by the killer quake in 1990 and 1992. They get most of their rice now from Bangued and other mountain municipalities supplied some of the rice needs of some of the lowland municipalities.

Rehabilitation have been on the communal facilities such as roads, trails, irrigation systems, footbridges and rice fields by the Masadiit Farmers Cooperative Inc. (MFCI) with the fund amounting to Php 2,903 million from the Presidential Management Staff and by the Inter NGO Disaster Relief Services (INDRS) with the fund amounting 292,516 Canadian Dollars, Php 7 million from OCXFAM. While these rehabilitation efforts have been done so much for the people of Boliney, there is still so much rehabilitation that needs to be done.
