Keep reading our guide on how to find an Ancient City in Minecraft as we share the location and a few different methods using which you can easily reach an Ancient City in Minecraft.

How To Find An Ancient City In Minecraft

In Minecraftyou can find an Ancient City in the Deep Dark biome that got added with The Wild update, which was released on June 7, 2022.

Firstly, you must prepare yourself to explore the Deep Dark biome to find an Ancient City. You can take a few Potions of Night Vision, an Elytra, something for healing, and a few weapons.

After that, start digging right below along the Y-axis. As the name may suggest, Deep Dark is a cave biome located below the surface level. To increase your chances of reaching the Deep Dark biome and finding an Ancient City, we recommend you dig Y – 51 or even below.

Since it is a cave biome, there are chances you may fall to death. But if you have prepared as we said, you can use Elytra to save yourself. The Deep Dark biome is also very dark, with few light sources.

So, using the Potion of Night Vision will help you explore the biome and reach Ancient City. And the weapons and healing items are for the mobs and a chance of better survival against the infamous Warden.
