The muon fluxes at several altitudes are examined with the simulation code used by HKKM04 [1]. This study makes it possible to estimate the uncertainty in the atmospheric neutrino flux calculated by HKKM04, which is less than 10 % in 1-10 GeV. It also provides us a method to calibrate the interaction model, and we find that DPMJET-III [2], the interaction model used by HKKM04, needs to be modified at high energies. We propose a modification of DPMJET-III, and present the results with the modified interaction model.
