You can update in xml. Go to catalog_product_view.xml of Catalog module. You can use move for this.

This can also be done by updating default.xml file of theme. You can choose any option and do changes in extended module not in core. Comment your progress and I will help to sort out this issue.

  • Can you please explain how and where should i look. I am not good in coding. Please guide me. Commented May 28, 2017 at 12:36
  • Path: vendor/magento/module-catalog/view/frontend/layout/catalog_product_view.xml and vendor/magento/module-theme/view/frontend/layout/default.xml but dont edit in core files.

Please check the product view page where that description part is coming. There can be change in attribute code which is calling that block.
