Huhūka (हुहूक) is the name a locality mentioned in Rājaśekhara’s 10th-century Kāvyamīmāṃsā.—Huhūka is the region in the northern India. It may be identified with the northern Kāśmir. This part surrounding Huskapura or Uskar may represent the Huhūka of Rājaśekhara and presumably this may represents the part of Kaśmir which is otherwise omitted in the list of north Indian countries to the Rājaśekhara’s Kāvyamīmāṃsā.
