Khufi is one of the Pamir languages of Tajikistan's Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region. It is closely related to, and traditionally considered a dialect of, Shughni, but is quite distinct. It is spoken in the villages of Khuf and Pastkhuf in the Khufdara River gorge — a right-hand tributary of Panj that descends from the Rushan Range south of the Bartang River and the town of Rushan.
