Tkalca Cave is the sink cave of the brook Rak and with that the natural conclusion of the valley. Here goes the river into underworld in which pours out after 3 kilometres into Pivka in the confluence of the Planina cave. Its name the cave got after the interesting column formation. This represents after the old folk believe the weaver who was for punishment, because he worked for holiday, changed into the stone. From the large entrance hall, which is illuminated from the direction of flowing the brook Rak and through the lateral sink, is along stream continuing 400 metres long dark tunnel and ends with the siphon. In the year 1974 cavers succeeded to swim it and after it they discovered 1800 metres long water tunnel, which ends with new, not researched siphon. From there is only 100 metres of unresearched caves till the famous Rak tunnel in Planina cave.
