Abstract: Work is currently under way in the Tunka Valley, 50 km from Lake Baikal, to create the TAIGA gamma observatory for studying gamma radiation and cosmic ray fluxes in the 1013–1018 eV range of energies. To detect gamma rays with energies above tens of TeV, a hybrid method of detecting showers is implemented. It is based on data obtained by the TAIGA Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Telescope (IACT) and the wide-angle TAIGA-HiSCORE array. The preliminary results from processing the telescope’s data for the low-energy region (>2–3 TeV) are presented. Joint events with energy more than 50 TeV are analyzed and compared to Monte Carlo calculations.
