The lingm (Dzongkha གླིངམ་, Wylie: glingm) is a type of flute indigenous to Bhutan. The lingm, the dramyin (lute) and the chiwang (fiddle) comprise the basic instrumental inventory for traditional Bhutanese folk music.

There are two varieties of lingm: the dong lingm (གདོང་གླིངམ་ Wylie: gdong-glingm), which is front-blown; and the zur lingm (ཟུར་གླིངམ་, Wylie: zur-glingm), which is side-blown.
