Searching for ultra-high energy (PeV) cosmic ray accelerating source is the core problem in the study of cosmic ray origin. One of the most direct methods is to look for the ultra-high energy
gamma-ray radiation generated by the interaction between cosmic rays and interstellar gas near the accelerator. Twelve ultra-high energy gamma ray sources have been observed on the galactic disk
by the Large High Altitude Air Shower Observatory (LHAASO). Here, we report the result for LHAASO J1825-1326 region using the Water Cherencov detector array (WCDA) and kilometer array (KM2A) data. The 𝛾-ray emission above 1 TeV observed by LHAASO from the region of LHAASO J1825-1326 is well described by four components including galactic diffuse emission, 1LHAASO J1825-1418 and 1LHAASO J1825-1256u, the likely counterparts to known 𝛾-ray sources, HAWC J1825-138 and HAWC J1826-128, respectively, and LHAASO J1825-1256u in
the middle. At present, the origin and radiation mechanism of 1LHAASO J1825-1337u can not be fully confirmed. While CRs accelerated to energies of several PeV colliding with the ambient
gas likely produce the observed radiation.
