Where to find the end portal in Minecraft

If you want to find the end portal in Minecraft, you will need to find a stronghold hidden underground. However, you will need to make an item called an eye of ender to find these strongholds.

To make the eye of ender, you will need to craft it with an ender pearl and blaze powder. You can get the blaze powder you need by crafting down blaze rods you get from Blazes, and you can get ender pearls from slaying Endermen. Blazes can be found roaming nether fortresses in the Nether and Endermen on the overworld and in caves alongside other monsters in the game.

When you get both materials, you will then need to place them inside a crafting table next to each other to make the eye of ender.  After you craft the eye of ender, grab it and then head out and use it by pressing your use key. Doing so will cause the eye to fly up and head in the direction of the nearest stronghold.

The eye of the ender will fall down or even explode after floating, so make sure to remember the direction its floating and follow it to reach the stronghold. Once you find the stronghold, you will need to locate a staircase leading down. At the end of the stairway, you'll find the end portal waiting to take you to the End dimension. Best of luck with defeating the dragon!
