Best Answer

You need the following:

  • Lava
  • Water
  • A diamond pick axe
  • Flint and steel
  1. Either find some naturally occurring obsidian, or pour water onto a lava pool with a bucket to create obsidian, then mine it with a diamond pickax. You need 10 blocks of obsidian to make the portal.
  2. Create a square frame 4 blocks wide by 5 blocks tall using the obsidian. The corners do not need to be obsidian for it to work.
  3. Set the inside of the frame on fire, preferably using a flint and steel.

If the inside of the frame turns purple, then you have a Nether portal! Stand in the purple portal block for several seconds and you will be transported to the Nether (unless it's disabled on a multiplayer server). Portals in the Nether will return you to the Overworld.

By the way rarely when you go back you come out somewhere random.
