The Dingy Jungle is a mission within the Minecraft Dungeons Jungle Awakens DLC of Minecraft Dungeons. It has a secret in the Cross The Canyon objective, that if found, grants access to the Panda Plateau. This is the first mission of Jungle Awakens.


ENTANGLED IN VINES – We've tracked the Orb's shard to the edge of a dense jungle where dangerous creatures creep out from under the thick canopy. What brave hero would dare cut through the twisting vines to reach the dark power that hides within?

In-game story

The Orb of Dominance may have shattered, but its powerful shards have scattered across the vast Overworld. One of those shards has landed in a lush Jungle, where new threats roar to life beneath the dark canopies. The shard, the source of corruption must be destroyed to free this land from the Orb's dark manipulations.


The journey has just begun. For the corrupting shard lies deeper still within the heart of the jungle.



The Dingy Jungle is a large jungle with various ruins and statues scattered about along with dense vegetation and is very damp and humid. It is constantly raining and many zombies and skeletons are covered in a layer of moss.


The Dingy Jungle is a damp and soggy place, with many dangerous mobs roaming about. Now that the shard has landed in the Jungle, the number of horrors that await here has only greatly increased.

The hero must push their way though this dense muddy land to track down the shard. They face Jungle Zombies and Mossy Skeletons that roam the jungle canopies, and have their path consistently blocked by the many quick growing vines. As the hero continues to press forward toward the temple, they face more horrifying creatures such as Whisperers, Leapleaves, and Poison-Quill Vines.

Once the hero reaches the end of the jungle, they will be greeted with the gateway to an overgrown temple that harbors the shard and its overgrown monstrosity. Upon opening the gate, a deafening roar fills the air and a large number of mobs converges on the hero.

  • There is a secret lava temple room in this mission, where later in the area an obsidian tablet with Illageralt inscribed on it reads: "Find where bamboo grows, when canyon lava flows". This is a hint to the location of the Panda Plateau secret map.
