Minecraft Dungeons Nether Portal Guide

Here's how to find the Minecraft Dungeons Nether Portal location, though we're not really sure what it does just yet.

There are many secrets hidden away in Mojang's new dungeon-crawler, but none more mysterious than the Minecraft Dungeons Nether Portal. Since the game's release date, many players have been trying to figure out what it's for and how to activate it. 

Sadly, it appears that the Nether Portal isn't actually functional as of this writing, some two weeks after launch. Many surmise that the Nether Portal has something to do with the game's upcoming DLC, though whether that's the Jungle Awakens DLC, which releases sometime in July, or the Creeping Winter DLC, which is scheduled to release sometime later in 2020, remains unclear. 

The TL;DR is that we don't exactly know what the Nether Portal is for or when it will activate. It could be DLC related, but it might not be either.

A Redditor claims to have "found the other end of the broken Nether Portal" by using "switch files modded" into the PC version of the game, which you can see here if you dare.  

While it remains to be seen if the above Reddit post proves true, we do know for certain how to find the Nether Portal so you can see for yourself.

How to Find the Minecraft Dungeons Nether Portal

The Nether Portal is located in a secret area to the right of your house in your camp. 

The area is inaccessible in the early-game. To open the area, you must beat the game and defeat the last boss (the Arch-Illager) at the Obsidian Pinnacle, following the battle at Highblock Halls. 

Once you beat the Arch-Illager, return to your camp. You will see new launchpads/jumpads to the right of your house. Jump on the first one to land on the stone platform between your house and the new area. Then jump on the second one to enter the newly unlocked area. 

Follow the path right for a short way, and then turn left when the area opens up (just after you descend the small set of stone stairs). The Nether Portal will be on your left, standing out in the open.
