Bernardo Carpio is a legendary figure in Philippine Mythology who is said to be the cause of earthquakes. The basic form of the legend is that Bernardo Carpio, a being of great strength, is trapped in between two great rocks in the Mountains of Montalban. Some versions say he is keeping the mountains from crashing into each other, and some versions say he is trapped and trying to break free. When Bernardo Carpio shrugs his shoulder, an earthquake occurs.

after trekking, spelunking and eating our lunch, we went back to our next activity which is the wawa dam sight-seeing and photo-ops followed by river bathing. there is no so much data gathered about wawa dam, even the locals i asked what they can say about, they can't even tell me any information might help or might be useful to bring-up the tourism on this place. i just know the area is really peaceful and people there are all nice.

Wawa dam, after all, was the lone supplier of water to Manila from 1908. In 1968, when Angat Dam was finished, Wawa dam was decommissioned. But the supply from Angat is no longer sufficient, so why not harness Wawa again ??? The MWSS said that Wawa is good for at least 50 million liters of water per day (MLD).
