Guiqiong (Guichong) is a poorly attested Qiangic (Tibeto-Burman) language of Sichuan and Tibet. Two or three dialects have low intelligibility with the rest, but communication is possible.[1]

It may be the same language as Sötati-pö in early editions of Ethnologue.[3]

Sun (1991) documents Guiqiong of Maiben Township 麦本乡, Yutong District 鱼通区, Kangding County 康定县, Sichuan (Sun 1991:227).
