Tour organizer's comments

You need a fairly good physical shape and an idea of what a backpacking trip is (2 trips with a backpack with all equipment and food are supposed to be). 

The average weight of a backpack with public equipment and food for men is from 15 to 20 kg, for women — from 13 to 18 kg. The final weight will depend on the number of personal items. The weight of the public module is about 5 kg.
