Shenako (Georgian: შენაქო, also spelled Shenak'o or Shenaqo) is a highland village in the eastern Georgian region of Kakheti.

Shenako located on the southern slope of the Greater Caucasus, in the historical-geographical area of Tusheti, some 100 km northeast of the municipal center of Akhmeta, close to the border with Dagestan, Russia.

Shenako is one of the few still populated villages in highland Tusheti, but is only accessible by land through a 4WD. The village is overlooked by Mount Diklo and contains a series of buildings of Georgian folk architecture and the old church of the Holy Trinity.[2]
