At the 672th kilometer of the Chuisky tract is Kupchegen - a village of craftsmen who have preserved the traditions of Altai crafts and production technology. The inhabitants themselves consider themselves to be direct descendants of the Scythians. Their art is based on the Pazyryk (Scythian-Siberian animal) style. Unique craftsmen make unique things - saddlery, leather embossing, embossing and jewelry, felt felting, bone carving, artistic forging, pottery... Here you can also see the Golden Saddle of Altai - the fruit of the joint work of American and Kupchegen craftsmen, over the production of which 12 craftsmen worked on wood, bone, stone, leather, metal and felt. The cost of exclusive saddles can go up to 400,000 rubles.
Master classes are held at the Crafts Center.
6 km from Kupchegen there is the Kur-Kuchu tract, where a large number of ancient burial mounds, stone warriors, rock paintings and menhirs have been preserved.
