Monte Carlo studies of QCD at finite density suffer from the notorious sign problem, which becomes easily uncontrollable as the chemical potential increases for a moderate lattice size. In this work, we attempt to approach the high density low temperature region by the complex Langevin method (CLM). Simulations are performed on an 8^3 x 16 lattice using four-flavor staggered fermions with reasonably small quark mass. Unlike previous work with a 4^3 x 8 lattice, the criterion for correct convergence is satisfied in the nuclear matter phase without using the deformation technique. In this phase the baryon number density has a plateau with respect to the chemical potential, and it starts to grow rapidly at some point.
