Pahari Kinnauri, or Kinnauri Pahari, is a Western Pahari of northern India. It is spoken by scheduled caste in Kinnaur District; the language used to be called as Kinnauri Harijan, but it is no longer used as this is a derogatory term. It is not clear how distinct it is from other varieties of Himachali.
