All 220 houses in Kuni were destroyed, leaving more than a thousand people homeless. The village is cut off by road and difficult to reach at the best of times - further isolated now due to landslides closing the nearest roads in both directions.<br />

On 25 April 2015 a powerful earthquake of 7.8 magnitude struck central Nepal, causing widespread destruction of property and infrastructure and killing approximately over 8,000 people. Many buildings on the UNESCO World Heritage list were also damaged or destroyed.
