Balochistan (or Baluchistan) is a region of south Asia, presently split between Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. The area is named after the numerous Baloch (or Baluch, Balouch) tribes who moved in to the area from the west some time around 1000.

Languages spoken in the region include Balochi and Brahui.

The southern part of Balochistan is known as Makran. See also Kalat.
