Can anyone please determine if this is a moth or butterfly and what its name? We found it near a waterfall in the Philippines. There's actually a bunch of them and it seems that it's their natural habitat which is close to the waterfall and a stream along.

That is a butterfly known as a "Mapwing". It is in the family Nymphalidae. I'm pretty sure it is Cyrestis maenalis. https://wikivividly.com/wiki/Cyrestis_maenalis
