From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia. Bernardo Carpio is a legendary figure in Philippine mythology who is said to be the cause of earthquakes. There are numerous versions of this tale. Some versions say Bernardo Carpio is a giant, as supported by the enormous footsteps he has reputedly left behind in the mountains of Montalban. Others say he was the size of an ordinary man. Accounts of the stories have pre-colonial origins, but the name of the hero was Hispanized during the Spanish colonization. The original name of the hero has been lost in time. All versions of the story agree that Bernardo Carpio had a strength that was similar to that of many strong men-heroes in Asian epics, such as Lam-ang.

Once upon a time, there was a couple who lived in one of the many mountains of San Mateo, Rizal. The man and the woman were very poor and led a very hard life. But one day, amidst all their poverty and hardships, came a bundle of joy and happiness. The man and the woman were given the gift of the birth of a big, beautiful, and healthy baby boy. Like any other kid, Bernardo loved to play. But something was noticeably very different about Bernardo. Unlike the other kids, Bernardo had the power of extraordinary strength. It was said that when Bernardo was still a baby crawling on all fours, all the floorboard nails that he hooked with his tiny fingernails were pulled out from their very places. When Bernardo was still learning how to walk, any railing that he used for support was destroyed and splintered into pieces. As Bernardo grew up to be a handsome young man, his power doubled and increased even more.
The myth about Bernardo Carpio brought me here, trapped between two rocks or the two mountains. Perfect for quick rides just a few minutes away from Manila. Been here three times and I still love this place. So this is not my first time here as I write this review.. It all started when I was in college way back , it was our photography project where we need to have to take a good shot of nature anywhere we want. All my classmates declined to go here because they thought that it'll be boring but I went on without them.. Manila to Rizal would take you 50mins only if you know the traffic schedules in rizal area. I never hesitated to go because this is a very promising place in my life and WAWA DAM is simply the best place to go for a short road trip with family and friends.
