    To construct a nether portal you will want a diamond pick axe. You need 10 blocks of obsidian which is obtained where lava meets water. If you don't have a diamond pick you can use buckets of lava and water to form the obsidian but this is tricky as you won't be able to move it. The shape of the portal is as follows. Place two blocks side by side on the ground. On either side of these obsidian place a placeholder block such as dirt. Then on top of the dirt place three blocks of obsidian straight up and then another dirt. Do this on both sides. Then place the remaining two blocks of obsidian in between the dirts on the top. Light the portal using a flint and steel which is made from one iron and one flint.

    Ventus871So I have a question, bot regarding ur solution cause it's very detailed and gives the info needed to do it but the problem I've been having is that I've built 4 neither portals in 4 different worlds and I still have yet to get the achievement. Is there anything you can suggest to me?

    GrumpyYogi1968This achievement popped for me but only after i went into the nether, just building the portal and lighting it wasn't enough for me.

    Mr DarensterAlso, you would need 14 obsidian. The portal needs to be four blocks across and five blocks tall, leaving out the six in the centre. When you enter into the Nether Realm, you'll find your exit portal consists of 14 blocks of obsidian. This achievement is possible to get when in Peaceful Mode too

    To the west behind the initial area of the elytra tutorial there is a snowy mountain and there the nether portal, just go there to take out an obsidian block and light the portal again

    Gerbasgameror you can just go through the portal. That's all it takes.
