Tregami, Trigami or Gambiri is a language spoken by the Tregami people in the villages of Gambir and Katar in the Watapur District of Kunar Province in Afghanistan.

Tregami belongs to the Indo-European language family, and is on the Nuristani group of the Indo-Iranian branch.

Ethnologue estimates its speakers at 1,000 (1994). Its speakers are overwhelmingly Muslim, and literacy rates are low: below 1% for people who have it as a first language, and between 5% to 15% for people who have it as a second language.

It has a lexical similarity of approximately 76% to 80% with the Kalasha-ala language spoken in the adjacent Waygal Valley to the west and in Ghaziabad District to the east.
