Pits are generated structures in Minecraft that frequently appear underground or on the surface of the world, particularly in flat biomes like Plains or Sunflower Plains.


Pits are roughly cylindrical structures that can be found in flat biomes or underground. They often have a few small ledges at the top, and a few more at the bottom. At the bottom, they often curve off into a cave. Some Pits are closer to rectangular prism-shaped instead of cylindrical, as shown in the above image.
