Jomax Peak

Jomax Peak in Bacolod

Jomax Peak is rest house, campsite, and flower sanctuary located in Salvador Benedicto, a municipal of Negros Occidental east of Bacolod. It is known for its sea of clouds, which can be seen at its peak under the right temperature and humidity. These clouds have the highest probability of appearing during “Habagat”, aka the South Monsoon months, typically during the May to October. 

 

How It Started

Before it became open to the public, Jomax Peak used to be a private rest house owned by the family of Atty. Jomax Ortiz. As they want to share this picturesque panoramic view of mountains and clouds from their rest house, it has been opened to the public in 2016. Visitors can choose to visit for a day trip or stay overnight in this abode with a wide mountain backdrop. Jomax Peak is known as “Little Tagaytay” or “Little Baguio” as it shares similar landscapes and features as the famous mountain resort.  

 

What to do

There are numerous waterfalls around the area which can be seen from the balcony and should visitors wish to trek to the falls, the staff can assist in recommending a guide. One of the famous falls around the area is Malatan-og Falls. Malatan-og Falls is famous for its high, thin waterfalls dubbed “cigarette waterfalls.”

They also have a zip line facility called the “Everest Zipline” and it is one of the highest and longest zip lines in the country. It is suspended at 1000 feet above the ground and spans one kilometer across the mountain tops. This zip line was created by a team who scaled up Mt. Everest, hence the name.

If visitors plan to stay in Jomax Peak, reservation is encouraged as there are limited spots. There is a café located in the vicinity called Terraza Café which serves basic Filipino meals and drinks.
