A rugged and undulating terrain is common in all slopes from the foothills of Sierra Madre Mountain Range (SMMR) down to man-made lake and down to Laguna Lake. Cavinti is situated in the foothills of SMMR and its topography is a longitudinal traversing of many minor ridges and drainage basins (valleys). The terrain of Cavinti can be best described as having a gently rolling to steeply undulating landform. Most of the lakefront areas are generally flat. The highest elevation computed using digital elevation model (DEM) is 501 meters located in Barangay Lumot near the boundary of Quezon Province and the lowest is 21 meters located in Barangay Anglas near the boundary of Municipality of Pagsanjan, Laguna.
Legends have it that the name Cavinti came from the phrase "KAPIT SA BINTI", which the first Spanish colonizers found very difficult to pronounce. The Town of Cavinti was originally a part of Lumban, Laguna. It was only in 1619 when the town gained complete and independent status as a parish by virtue of a papal bull believed to have come directly from Rome.
