Danwar (also rendered Danuwar, Denwar, Dhanvar, Dhanwar), is a language spoken in parts of Nepal by an Indo-Aryan ethnic group of fifty thousand. It is close to Bote-Darai but otherwise unclassified within the Indo-Aryan languages.

A variety called Danwar Rai is distinct and may be a separate language. It is not related to the Rai languages of the Tibeto-Burman family.
