We operate an air shower array and an emulsion chamber simultaneously at Mt. Chacaltaya (5200 m, Bolivia), in order to study high energy nuclear interactions, induced by cosmic rays. We show that high energy electromagnetic component and hadronic component in the air shower are not described by the simulations, indicating that the energy spectrum of produced particles in multiple particle production is suppressed strongly in the forward region.
