Huta Ginjang is famous for its panoramic view of Lake Toba. From Huta Ginjang you can enjoy viewing the Muara, Sibandang Island and also some paddy field from atop. Huta Ginjang is also famous for paragliding sport. Here is where the local play this sport (locally known as paralayang or gantole). The player would take off from Huta Ginjang and normally landed at Desa Aritonang.
