This Falls are the small part of Eagle falls, In Eagle falls the falls are wide in nature but in Crinoline falls, these are tiny and large in nature. All these tiny falls are collected at one place which is very much to see.

Crinoline Fall is covered in deep woods. It is near Lady Hydari Park in Shillong city. The water does not drop from a great height but it looks good and it has created a pool at the base.

It is quite hard to find however the nearest place is crinoline swimming pool which the locals seem to know about. Go here after visiting all nearby places - if you have nothing else to do :-)
