There were two great grandsons of Dreykha namely Choida Jamtsho and Drukdra Namgyel (1735-1762), the reincarnation of Zhabdrung’s son Jampel Dorji. Similarly, two sons were born to former whereby the younger one married with the daughter of Khochung Lama and settled in Zhamling from where the descendants were born. It was stated that one of his descendants even attained rainbow body from Shawa Goenpa.Pema was one of the descendants. As Shawa is far from Lhuntse, he was then ordered by Lhuntse Dzongpon to settle in Jang area and  took the ownership over Ngar area as he was then an astrologer to Lhuntse Dzongpon. His daughter Tshewang Dolma, who was born in Ngar, married with Sangay of Shingkhar Dung and gave birth to Lam Rinzin, the disciple of Togden Shacha Shri and an accomplished Buddhist master of his time.

After his studies and mastery over Buddhism under the tutelage of Togden Shacha Shri in Tibet, Lam Rinzin returned to Bhutan and established his seat at Yodra which popularly known as Yodra Goenpa. He had two daughters – Seldon and Jamyang. The present Yodra Trulku, the incarnation of Lama Rinzin, is said to have born from Seldon whose lineage to Dungkar Choejee is still not broken.
