An Extensive Air Shower array of a novel type has been constructed in Tibet at an altitude of 4300 m above sea level. It consists of specially designed scintillator en-detectors capable of measuring two main EAS components: hadrons (n) and electrons (e). Results of the experiment are presented. It is demonstrated that the EAS integral distribution in the number of thermal neutrons can be well fitted by a single power law function. Comparison with detailed Monte-Carlo simulations using CORSIKA6.9 and GEANT4.10 codes are also shown.
