Click on any of the images to see the enlarged copy and narratives of the photo.

In the Batangas dialect, Naambon means "It is showering". Aptly named, Naambon falls literally cascades like a rain shower during the wet seasons when a lot of water is flowing from the mountains.  The falls is located near Barrio Hugom, west of Laiya.   It is accessible only by hiking about 1.5kms on the beach and about 1km
up and down through a mountainside footpath

How to get there

Trek starts from any of the resorts in Barrio Hugom, west end of Laiya.

For instructions on how to get to Laiya and Hugom, see the laiya waypoint page

Guides to the waterfall can be hired by making arrangements with any of the resort operators in Hugom.  For those who would like to trek by GPS, you can download the appropriate waypoints and tracks file from the vicinity map pages.

Additional narratives or blogs:
Rainy season has started for this year, so we decided to visit Naambon Falls once again hoping there would be ample water flow for a good photo take. However, we were disappointed to discover that, even with the grounds around the area already wet and saturated, the falls did not have any more water than it had during the dry season. Something must be wrong with the water source upstream. We can only guess as we can now see several plastic water pipes tapping water from the top of the falls to bring down to the community down on the beach front. The pipes are eyesores covering nearly every picturesque angle of the falls.
