Abstract: We show the existence of nonconstant bounded $p$-harmonic functions on Cartan-Hadamard manifolds of pinched negative curvature by solving the asymptotic Dirichlet problem at infinity for the $p$-Laplacian. More precisely, we prove that given a continuous function $h$ on the sphere at infinity there exists a unique $p$-harmonic function $u$ on $M$with boundary values $h.$
