One of the main draws for tourists is Kaman Post, particularly for excursions that inspire students and college-bound youth. The view from the other side of the Line of Control makes the post particularly well-liked.
The army is promoting Kaman Post, Uri along the Line of Control, as a tourist destination in the Baramulla district of North Kashmir. Kaman Post is one of the major attractions for visitors, especially for motivational tours of the school and college-going children. The post is especially popular for a view across the Line of Control. The Army arranges trips for students to educate and inform them about the importance of the Kaman Post.
"I have come to Kaman post earlier. The Army has renovated the area and there is information about the history of the rulers of Jammu Kashmir and of brave Indian soldiers who laid down their lives for the nation. Tourists and locals visiting this place will learn about its history and other things," Pervez Majeed, a local told.
Faisal Iqbal Khan, a Sarpanch told that the upgraded version of Kaman Post would enrich visitors with the history of the soldiers who made supreme sacrifices during wartime. "A lot of things have been added here. Like the details of soldiers who laid down their lives. It is a beautiful place. A veer path has been added," Khan added.

Kaman post is presently witnessing a large number of tourist footfalls and locals are hopeful that in the coming months, it will become a major tourist attraction. Anamika, a tourist from Patna, expressed gratitude to the local people.
