          Just after capturing Sirmaur deceptively, Gorkha captured Jubbal a petty Hill  Kingdom in north of Sirmaur. The Khaneti Thakur Risal Singh took asylum in Bushehar/Bushahar Kingdom. Gorkha captured Thakurai of Risal Singh.
          Gorkha captured Thakurai (petty Kingdoms) as Bilsan, Keyunthal, Tharoch, Ghoond, Kotkhai, Thiyog and Kotgarh without any resistance. That was the terror of Gorkha in Doti, Kumaon and Garhwal that none of above Kings resisted against Gorkha. Those Kingdoms were also engaged in petty quarrel among themselves and their power was meanly divided. After winning the above territories, Gorkha army reached towards Bushehar. Bushehar/Bushahr King and his subjects did not lose their hearts and resisted against Gorkha. By any means, Gorkha army reached Hatu Hills. The minor prince Ugar Singh of Bushehar/Bushahr/Bussahir Kingdom ran and took asylum in Kamrun Kingdom.
    Gorkha inavadors captured Hattu, Kuran, Baghi, Navgarh, Sungari and Bahli Gadh or Forts and kept soldiers in those forts.
Once, Gorkha could reach Rampur, Himachal Pradesh. Gorkha soldiers looted the treasurer and burnt the records of Bushahr etc. This was the biggest loss for History. Gorkha could not have control over Kinnaur or Kannaur region with ease and stability.  Once, Gorkha commander sent its army to capture and loot Kamru Treasury. Gorkha army camped near Chuganv (Tholang) at bank of Chholtu  River. In Night Kinnaurs burnt Chholtu River Bridge and attacked on Gorkha army as Guerilla attack. Gorkha were surprised and were in very disadvantage position. Gorkha had to flee from there as they faced food and other material problems there.
