Badeshi is an Indo-Iranian language spoken in the upper reaches of the Bishigram Valley (Chail), east of Madyan, Swat, Kohistan in Northern Areas of Pakistan.

The Badeshi people of the Bishigram Valley and the Tirat Valley number approximately 1,500. Statistics for the towns of Pooran Chakesar, Alai, and Mansehra are not available. The Badeshi people there stopped using their native language completely few generations ago. People in the Bishigram Valley speak Torwali and in the Tirat Valley they speak Pashto.

Muhammad Zaman Sagar, a field linguist, has worked on this language. But as a result of his research during two years, he has collected only about one hundred words. In July 2007 he visited the Bishigram valley again and spent some days with the people there.
