The process for making NetherPortal in Minecraft is the same in Minecraft Bedrock and Jave Edition.

Materials Required:

The two main and only materials/items required to construct the Nether Portal are listed below;

  • 1 Flint and Steel
  • 10 Obsidian Blocks

You can get the Obsidian block by mixing the source lava block with a bucket of water. The purple block produced as a result is what you are looking for. You will need a diamond pickaxe and a lot of time to mine Obsidian Blocks.

Secondly, you need a flint & steel tool to light and activate the Nether Portal in Minecraft. You would need 1 iron ingot and 1 flint to make this tool.

The basic shape required to make the Nether Portal is as follows.

  • Make an Obsidian Block structure with 4 blocks wide on the base and top, with 5 blocks tall on the sides.
  • This would make a rectangle shape with the middle portion empty, keep it that way.
  • You can break off the four corner blocks from the structure as it doesn’t need it.
  • Now you have to equip the Flint & Steel tool and right-click into the empty inner area of the structure. This will activate the Nether Portal in Minecraft.

Bow just stands in between the glowing purple-ish zone and you will be inside the nether in no time.
