    What are deserts in Minecraft?

    I deserti in Minecraft they are quite similar to those in real life. They are biomes full of sand, without trees and with very little water.

    This biome is very hostile towards players, with monsters like the Husks attacking at night, and because it is a very flat biome, it is difficult to escape from any threat. Furthermore, the lack of trees and animals makes it difficult to build and obtain food, and the lack of water makes it difficult to move around.

    The only animals that inhabit deserts in Minecraft are the rabbits and the water appears only if the desert is of very low altitude. Therefore, before moving to a desert it is essential lead with self sufficient resources, such as wooden tools and food.

    But all is not bad in this biome. Since it is quite flat, some structures are generated, such as outposts of marauders, desert temples, fossils and villages.

    Villages are the only place in the desert where you can find cows, pigs, cats, sheep and villagers. Therefore, survival in the desert depends on finding enough villages.

    How to find a desert and a desert temple?

    Finding biomes in Minecraft can be difficult, since the game doesn't offer any kind of guidance. However, there are several methods for finding deserts, which we show you below:


    This is the most fun way to search for deserts, because it involves exploration. To find a desert, or any other biome, grab a horse and run until you find it. Or hop on a boat and sail until you see a desert.

    However, to have a better chance of finding a desert, it is useful to know where it spawns. Deserts usually appear near other hot biomes, such as savannas, plateaus and warm oceans. Reading some maps is also useful while exploring.

    Using tricks

    There is a command that allows you to locate any biome in the game. However, this command is only available in version 1.16 of the Java edition of the game. The command is «/ locatebiome ". To use this command to locate a desert, replace "biome id" with the word "desert".

    If you did it correctly, the game will show you some coordinates. Enough travel to those coordinates to reach the desert. You can see your current coordinates by pressing the «F3» key.

    You can also use the "/ tp XY Z" command by replacing "X" "Y" and "Z" with the three numbers the game showed you when you used the previous command. If these commands fail, it is possible that your world does not have cheats enabled or that the world administrator has not granted you the permissions.

    An external application

    There are external applications that allow you to find biomes by entering the world seed. In this article, we recommend ChunkBase. Simply enter the seed of your world and select the biome you want to find.

    In "X" and "Z" you enter the coordinates where you are, where your home is or a landmark that you know where it is, and from there you can navigate until you find a desert. You can zoom in or out to find the desert closest to your location.

    If you don't know the seed of your world, you can find out using the "/ seed" command ; You can use this command even if the cheats are disabled or you don't have admin permission.

    Temples of the desert

    The three tricks above also work for getting the desert temples. You just have to change a few things to make it work for you. If you've already found a desert, look for the temple structure, which is like a giant pyramid.

    Use earth or stone towers to search from above. Use the command "/ locate desert_pyramid" to find the pyramids. Or use Chunkbase, by going to the "App" tab and clicking on "Desert Temple"

    With these tricks, you can already easily get deserts and desert temples in your world. Next, you will need to learn how to make a foundation. Remember to always carry enough food and armor.
