Information about Jomax Peak
Jomax Peak is a rest house, campsite, and flower sanctuary located in Salvador Benedicto, a municipality of Negros Occidental. 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 months of May to October.
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.
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.”
