ARGO-YBJ, an extensive air shower detector located at Yangbajing (Tibet, China) at 4300m a.s.l., is made by a full coverage carpet plus a guard ring (∼ 6700m2) of resistive plate chambers. Its structure, and the high altitude allow exhaustive studies of γ astronomy with energy range in the TeV region. In this paper some of the ARGO-YBJ results in γ astronomy are discussed. In particular the TeV emissions of the blazar Mrk 421, the analysis of its last two flares and the comparison with Cherenkov telescopes results are presented.
