Tolipir (Urdu: تولی پیر‎ also spelled Tolipeer, Tauli Pir, Tooli Pir, Toli Pir, or Toli Peer) is a hilltop area situated in Tehsil Rawalakot in the Poonch District of Azad Kashmir. Its approximate elevation is about 8800 ft above sea level. It is about 30 km, or a 120-minute drive, from Rawalakot in Azad Kashmir.[1] Abbaspur, Bagh and Poonch River can be viewed from Toli Pir.

Tolipir is the highest mountainous location in the northeastern area of Rawalakot; it is the point of origin of three different mountain ridges. The tourist rest house on the way to Toli Pir is also situated in a scenic location.[citation needed] There are some remains of an old mazar on the highest hilltop.[2]

Tolipir is most accessible during the summer months; the weather generally becomes colder from October through March.[citation needed]
