Abstract : The Galactic Plane is accessible to H.E.S.S. at longitudes up to 80 degrees through very low elevation observations. The ability of H.E.S.S. to observe at elevations as low as 25 degrees corresponding to an energy threshold of few TeV has been already validated through observations of the blazar Mkn 421. We report on H.E.S.S. data on the Galactic Plane up to the 80° longitude range and will discuss the possible nature of Milagro hotspots for the cases where overlapping data exists.
