Windswept Gravelly Hills in Minecraft


The windswept gravelly hills biome is a variant of the windswept hills biome. They share similar terrain and characteristics but this biome has gravel replacing the topsoil. The first few layers of blocks are gravel, instead of dirt. When compared to its standard and its sibling variant, the windswept gravelly hills appear barren and lack vegetation due to the absence of grass and soil. Trees require topsoil to generate and the presence of gravel as the topmost layer of the ground makes vegetation scarce. This variant is generated in lower humidity values, mainly next to plains and snowy plains.


Mobs


Windswept gravelly hills use the same mob spawning chances as the windswept hills. We can see passive mobs of chickens, pigs, sheep, and llamas. Llamas make good pack animals when tamed. Hostile mobs would include spiders, witches, creepers, and endermen. Bats are also seen in cave-like structures formed here.


Conclusion


This may not be the best biome for survival as resources are scarce. It would be extra hard to set up a base here due to the lack of available wood. Suffocation hazard is something players should watch out for while surfacing from underground, due to the gravel layers on top.
