Shpella e Radacit (Cave of Radac) is named after the town Radac, where it is located. The cave entrance is at an elevation of 580 m asl at the slopes of Ðutet hill west of town. To get there leave the man road P8 in town to the west and follow the road into the valley of Drini i Bardhë river. At the hydroelectric power station a trail leads up to the cave at the left side of the valley.
This cave is noted for fine speleothems, especially deep rimstone pools. It is a very young show cave, but actually it has been known for a long time. The cave is mentioned various times, mostly for its bats.
