Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua on Saturday morning trekked Mt Kenya as the Cabinet retreats in Nanyuki.
Gachagua urged Kenyans to embrace environmental conservation saying there is a certain calmness about nature.
He said among the things he had prayed for was President William Ruto's leadership.
In one of the photos shared on his social media pages, DP Rigathi is seen drinking water from a spring in Nanyuki.
"To come this close to the wonders of the world and to marvel at the works of God is a truly refreshing experience. Mt. Kenya is mythical. It is mysterious," he said.
"Facing Mount Kenya, I prayed to 'Mwene Nyaga' to give good health and wisdom to our Great Leader President William Ruto as he embarks on the economic transformation of our nation and the restoration of the dignity of the Kenyan people. Mlima is calm, steady, and stoic na iko sawa," he said.
He added that he took time to thank God for his mercy and kindness to the people of Kenya and for giving us the freedom we are now enjoying .
He said that the mountains, lakes, rivers, oceans, and forests in the country are a strong link to our roots.
He said that he took some time to pray, for God, to also deliver the youth from drugs.
"This is a reminder of the greatness of our past and the possibilities in our collective future," he said.
"I prayed that God gives us rain so that our hard-working people can once again see and enjoy the fruits of their labour from their farms.
I prayed that God delivers our young men and women from drugs and to specifically touch the hearts of those who sell drugs to our young people; to change their ways and let our youth become what they were destined to be.
I also prayed that God heals our land from all forms of cancer that are ravaging our population. Cancer has forced families into fundraising events every weekend as they try to clear bills. They are left with bills and in debt on the many occasions that the disease has claimed their loved ones."
