This Minecraft tutorial explains the Jungle biome with screenshots.

In Minecraft, you will spawn into worlds with unique weather, animals, and plants. These regions are known as biomes. Let’s explore the Jungle biome in Minecraft.


In Minecraft, the Jungle is a biome in the Overworld. It is known for its extremely tall trees, the tallest trees of all of the biomes. The Jungle biome is a lush area with lots of jungle trees, vegetation, and wildlife. This is the only biome where you can find ocelots.

Let’s explore the characteristics of the Jungle biome.


The weather in the Jungle biome is very wet with lots of precipitation. You will find that it rains a lot.

Overworld Mobs that Spawn at Night

Jungle Temples

If you look carefully in the Jungle biome, you will sometimes find a rare Jungle temple like the one below:

The Jungle temple is made out of cobblestone and mossy cobblestone. Inside the temple is a series of traps to avoid and 2 chests to find.

You can find the first chest by solving a puzzle. Go to the lower level of the temple and find the 3 levers. Flip the levers in the right order and a small room with a chest will be revealed. If you can’t figure out the lever order, use a pickaxe to mine behind the second lever and you will find the first chest.

The second chest is also on the lower level down the hallway after you have encountered all of the traps.
