|Himalayas of Nepal, India, and Pakistan|
|ISO 639-2 / 5:||him|
The Dogri–Kangri languages, traditionally known as Western Pahari or sometimes Himachali, are a range of languages and dialects spoken across the Himalayan range, from Pakistan to Nepal.
Although traditionally called Western Pahari, they are not as close to the other Pahari languages as they are to Panjabi. Although they are a dialect chain and neighboring varieties may be mutually intelligible, those counted as distinct languages in Ethnologue 16 are,
- Dogri–Kangri (closer to each other than either is to the other languages)
- Mandeali (Bilaspuri, Chambeali, Churahi, Gaddi)
- Harijan Kinnauri
- Mahasu Pahari
All are Dogri–Kangri traditionally considered dialects of either Hindi or Panjabi.
