Shaqlawa (Kurdish: شەقڵاوە, Syriac: ܫܩܠܒܕ, Arabic: شقلاوة‎) is an historically Assyrian city in the Arbil Governorate in the Kurdistan region of Iraq. Shaqlawa, a city of approximately 25,000 people, lies 51 km to the northeast of Erbil, at the bottom of Safeen Mountain. Shaqlawa is situated between Safeen Mountain and Sork Mountain, and sits 966 m above sea level. The town is inhabited mostly by Kurds, with a small Assyrian minority.

Due to its cool summer weather, Shaqlawa is visited annually by thousands of tourists from other parts of Iraq.
