Description

It lacks a diverse set of plants, with the only native vegetation being crimson roots and mushrooms although fungi, nether sprouts, various roots, and huge fungi may spawn where the valley borders a crimson forest or warped forest.


Its fog is cyan and the air particles are gray as the sounds of winds and the voices of ghosts fill the air. Giant columns of basalt called basalt pillars can be found stretching from the floor to the ceiling. Caverns, fortresses, and even bastion remnants can also be found in the soul sand valley.
