Cosmic rays are high-energy charged particles that come from outer space. They play an important role in the evolution of our Galaxy. Gamma-ray emission produced by cosmic rays is a direct probe of cosmic rays and their accelerators. As a key sub-array of the Large High Altitude Air Shower Observatory (LHAASO), KM2A is the most sensitive gamma-ray detector at ultra-high energy (UHE, >100 TeV) band. Here, we report four of the brightest UHE sources measured by LHAASO, LHAASO J1825-1326, LHAASO J1908+0621, LHAASO J2108+5157 and LHAASO J2226+6057. The morphology and spectral energy distribution of these sources are studied respectively using the KM2A data collected from December 2019 to December 2020. The origin of the UHE gamma-ray emission is also discussed taking into account the implications from multi-wavelength observations.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
