Underground Jungle

A Jungle and an underground jungle on a large map.

The Underground Jungle is one of the most difficult areas to traverse. Located below the surface Jungle, it is a dense network of small caverns, populated with thorns, water, and some of the most challenging enemies for most stages in the game.

Jungle Shrines and Underground Cabins are common, often containing chests with rare items. Materials such as Stingers, Jungle Spores, and Vines can also be gathered here in abundance. There are also approximately 3/5/7 Bee Hives (depending on world size) filled with honey and at least one Queen Bee Larva. The Jungle Temple is also located here, which only becomes accessible once Plantera is defeated in Hardmode.

On the Desktop only.png Desktop version, Living Mahogany Trees can be found with an Ivy Chest in them. Beehive background objects spawn in both the surface and Underground Jungle; when hit, they fall to the ground and break, spawning Bees and an occasional Hornet. Beehives can also be dislodged with grappling hooks.

On the Mobile only.pngMobile version, the Jungle Sanctum can be found in the Underground Jungle.
